Athens (Images of Modern America)

Athens (Images of Modern America)

Author: Patrick Garbin
Price: $22.99
Binding: Paperback
Description: From the early 1960s to the present, perhaps no college town in America has changed as much as Athens, Georgia. Over the course of 50 years, the city experienced desegregation at all levels of education, encountered all types of activism and demonstrations, and established an unparalleled music scene that still flourishes. Beginning in the 1980s, University of Georgia athletic teams began winning national championships and continue to do so, the 1996 Olympics came to Athens, and the downtown district is no longer a retail center but a 24-hour central city with more restaurants, bars, and eclectic shops than one can count. Athens is no longer the sleepy, small college town it once was, but truly the Classic City in every sense of the name.[more]

Athens (Postcard History)

Athens (Postcard History)

Author: Emily Jean Doster, Gary L. Doster
Price: $21.99
Binding: Paperback
Description: When the University of Georgia was founded in 1801, the city of Athens did not yet exist. The school's first classes were held under the trees, and Athens grew up around the school. As the university and Athens expanded, the town became the economic and cultural center of a large section of northeast Georgia, and many beautiful homes and other buildings were built. Fortunately, Athens was not in the path of Yankee general William T. Sherman's army when they sacked and burned a 30-to-60-mile-wide swath through Georgia between Atlanta and Savannah during his infamous March to the Sea in 1864. Consequently, several historic buildings still stand on the university's campus, and many beautiful antebellum homes still grace Athens's streets, avenues, and boulevards.[more]

A Portrait of Historic Athens and Clarke County (Wormsloe Foundation Publications) (Wormsloe Foundation Publication Ser.)

A Portrait of Historic Athens and Clarke County (Wormsloe Foundation Publications) (Wormsloe Foundation Publication Ser.)

Author: Frances Thomas, Mary Koch
Price: $30.95
Binding: Paperback
Description: Athens, Georgia, seems the quintessential southern university town. With a geography chiseled over geologic time by its lifeblood, the slow-flowing Oconee River, Athens has developed a unique culture as the two-century-long home of the state's bustling center of learning and research, the University of Georgia. A multitude of influences have powered the emergence of Athens from its eighteenth-century rustic solitude to its current incarnation as a community striving to preserve the old while embracing the new. A Portrait of Historic Athens and Clarke County gives equal attention to Athens's natural and built environments and their coevolution into one of the modern South's most dynamic small cities. Starting with the town's beginnings, Frances Taliaferro Thomas emphasizes settlement patterns, key events, institutions, architecture, landscape, economics, and the highly distinctive personalities that have molded Athens into what it is today.This edition includes two new sections of color photographs as well as a comprehensive new chapter tracing the milestones that led town and gown into the twenty-first century. Topics include the emerging cultural importance of the Classic Center; restoration and revitalization of many historic sites; vast building projects under two presidents of the University of Georgia; the progression of the greenway along the North Oconee River; and initiatives to address rising poverty rates within the county. Blending scholarly research with archival materials, official data, newspaper accounts, interviews, and personal letters and diaries, A Portrait of Historic Athens and Clarke County is the definitive account of a place that makes history each and every day.[more]
