Militarydefenseattorneys_4230Long ago, in the late 18th century, there was a trading settlement on the Cedar Shoals. Today Athens is located where that settlement used to be. The first state-supported university in Georgia was built in Athens. John Milledge, who was the trustee and governor of Georgia, donated 633 acres of land to the university. The area around the university was then named Athens, after the town in which both Aristotle and Plato lived. As years went by, the university got more and more money from donations. In 1804, the city had three homes and three stores, all of which faced the Broad Street. Athens was not an official town until 1806 when a three-member commission was appointed by the government. Thanks to the cotton mills the city became prosperous and the money continued to flow in the city budget. The first railroad was built in 1833. It was built thanks to only a couple of businessmen. During the 1960’s the citizens were still segregated, and 1961 will be remembered as the year Lemuel Penn was murdered by a KKK member and his friend.


The biggest employers in Athens play a big role in industry and are making a great contribution to the city budget. The most prominent ones are: CertainTeed, which is a fiberglass insulation company, Skaps, which produces non-woven plastics, Merial, which produces animal health products, NKC who makes automotive parts and many more.

Military Base

NSCS or Navy Supply Corps School was located in the city of Athens. The school was opened in 1860’s. In the beginning it was a military school for Confederate soldiers, but it soon started serving the function of a garrison as well. The school was closed and re-located in 2011. Its new location is Rhode Island. In 2010 the head of the school was declared unable to lead the school and was relieved of his duty. The whole school was subjected to a strict investigation which resulted in the closure of the same. While it was still running, the school occupied 58 acres. During the Civil war, the school was supported by the state and its primary goal was to educate the Confederate veterans which were disabled during the Civil war.
