About Our Community

DeKalb County has small communities, which allows residents to enjoy relatively lower costs of living and lower crime rates. However, county residents do not have to sacrifice cultural and entertainment opportunities to enjoy the benefits of small town living. DeKalb County’s larger cities – Fort Payne and Rainsville – have national retailers, restaurants, theaters (both performing arts and movies), and an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities. Fort Payne, the county seat, is located less than an hour and a half from Chattanooga, Tennessee.
