The Athens Historical Society was founded in 1959 and is dedicated to preserving the history of Athens, Clarke County, Georgia, and the surrounding area. The Society is a non-profit organization under federal 501(c)(3) regulations.

Membership in the Society offers informative quarterly meetings (typically the third Sunday of January, March, May and October), interesting projects, newsletters and other opportunities for learning more about the Athens area. Other publications issued by the Society include books, a map and a color video tour of 21 historic homes in Athens.

We welcome to our membership anyone interested in documenting and preserving the history and heritage of the Athens area.
