Welcome to Athens

Athens, formally known as Athens-Clarke County, is the sixth largest city in the state of Georgia.  Even though it is considered to be the smallest area geographically of any county in the state, Athens is still a great place to live with a rich history and a variety of activities for people to enjoy. 

Athens became a city in 1806 with a government made up of three members.  During this time, cotton mills stimulated the town’s commercial and industrial development.  In 1833, a group of businessmen led by James Camak were tired of their wagons getting stuck in the mud.  So, they decided to start The Georgia, one of the state’s first railroads, connecting Athens to Augusta.  This helped the transportation industry, along with the growth of the university, turn Athens into one of the state’s most important cities. 

Economically, the city is home to a blend of young and up and coming technology firms, coupled with many established ones as well.  There is also a strong presence of art in the Athens’ culture.

Special Points of Interest

Have you ever seen close to ninety three thousand people packed into one place on a Saturday afternoon for a college football game?  Well if you have not, go to Sanford Stadium on the campus of the University of Georgia and you will see just that.  Athens is home to many Georgia Bulldog fans who are very passionate about college football.

If the arts, nature, or animals are a more suitable option, Athens is the place for you.  The city is home to The Bear Hollow Zoo, the Georgia Museum of Art, Sandy Creek Nature Center, and The Georgia Theater.  All of these destinations are very relaxing, family-friendly ways for people of all ages to spend quality time with one another.
