Decatur - West End

Decatur's Historic West End

People choose to live in Decatur's West End because of the style of homes, its proximity to great education, recreation, great restaurants and its unique "buzz" that West-Enders understand. From its beautiful parks to its historic homes, the West End has a charm that is hard to beat.

The West End is home to Millikin University, a top-ranked, private university, known for the arts as well as its business and science programs.  The Kirkland Fine Arts center has many great shows throughout the year.  With just over 2,000 students enrolled each year, Millikin University is a hotspot for learning and activity.

The Dennis Lab School is a popular school in the West End, and it teaches Pre-K through the 7th grade.

Next to Millikin University is Fairview Park.  Fairview Park has plenty of room to spread out and enjoy, from tennis, biking and hiking, to pic-nicks and lunch events under the big pavilion, or watching the ducks play at Dreamland Lake. For the extreme sport lover, check out D-Town Skate Park.  Two other great parks to visit here: Kiwanis Park and Lincoln Park.

Many people fall in love with the older houses and beautiful architecture in the West End.  The famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, has inspired some masterpieces in the Midwest and Decatur is lucky enough to have one.  Watch this video – FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT.

Another beautiful, historic home, is the James Millikin Homestead.

On the far West side you’ll find the Scovill Golf Course – a beautiful 18-hole course with banquet facility.
