ATHENS THRU THE YEARS
Athens is famous for many different things. Perhaps you've heard of a few such as our being The Home of the Hamburger and The Black-Eyed Pea Capital of the World. Did you know, however, that our town has been influenced by the hands of many famous (and some, infamous) characters? You'll recognize names such as Clint W. Murchison, Sid Richardson, and George W. Bush but folks like Dull Averiette and James Pickney Henderson also touched our town in their own ways.
In this section, we'll be presenting a view of Athens's history as seen through the eyes of Anne Adams, local historian and contributing writer to the Athens Daily Review. We hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as we have!
