Decatur County Courthouse
Decatur County Courthouse Tower
Sometime in the 1800s an aspen tree took root in the roof of the Decatur County Courthouse tower and it has become something of a local curiosity and landmark. The town even advertises the tree on I-74 billboards as a tourist attraction.
Knights of Pythias Building
The KP Building dates from 1899, and housed the Knights of Pythias, a non-sectarian fraternal order. At one time the building also housed a theater for both films and live performances, and later was the site of the Decatur County Historical Society. When this photo was taken in March 2006 it bore at least two street adresses, 215 and 217 North Broadway, occupied by Club Fizz and Paul's Pool & Arcade, respectively. A sign on a doorway leading to upper floors still listed information about the Knights of Pythias Lodge, but a 2008 check of the organization's Indiana website gave no indication that the Greensburg lodge was still active.
