    athens has a very nice historic district downtown. courthouse square has a couple of restraunts and several shops. the historic district is home to the beautiful limestone county courthouse and a number of historic buildings and homes. athens is an interesting one mile side trip from I-65 for those interested in architecture and southern culture.
