Visiting the Athens District

Come see the attractions this small town and its surroundings have to offer!

Athens is well known for the beautiful murals that grace our buildings. See our Virtual Walking Tour!

Annual festivals including Cornfest, Farmersville, and the Parade of Lights entertain local people and visitors from afar. Meanwhile, nearby Charleston Lake offers wonderful opportunites for swimming, fishing, boating, or just communing with nature.

Athens is a lively town, definitely worth an afternoon of looking at the murals, visiting the local stores, seeing some area sites of interest and meeting the local people of Athens.

A sampling of local photographs, and also photographs of past events, can be found in our photo archives.
