Jerald Zwak - Gemstone Realty: Athens-Clarke County, Georgia

Athens-Clarke County, home of the University of Georgia, offers the best of two worlds: a vibrant, bustling college and revitalized downtown Athens area surrounded by the peace and quiet of rural life. The county is located 70 miles northeast of Atlanta and is rich with history, culture, and natural beauty.

History:

Clarke County is named after General Elijah Clarke, a Revolutionary War commander, and the county was enacted on December 5th, 1801. The city of Athens, home to the University of Georgia, grew up around the college, officially incorporating in late 1806. UGA is known as the country’s first university to earn a state-supported charter, issued in 1785.  Because of the draw of the newly created university, Athens became known as the intellectual and cultural center of Georgia.

Throughout the following centuries, the City of Athens and Clarke County enjoyed resiliency despite wars and economic downturns, due in no small part to the draw of the University and local investments in railroad and industries such as textiles and mills. The rural areas in the county were primarily agricultural, with cotton the primary crop until 1875, and gradually turning over to food crops in the following decades.

In 1990, the citizens of the City of Athens and Clarke County voted to unify their governments. In doing so, Athens-Clarke County became the second consolidated government in Georgia and the 28th in the nation. Its county seat is Athens, with which it is a consolidated city-county.

One of the things we love the most about this region is the caring restoration of its historic homes and buildings. Such wonderful architecture!

Quick Facts:

  • Approximately 125 square miles
  • 425 miles of rivers and streams
  • 40 national-registered historical sites
  • Median household income: $33,060
  • The bands REM and The B-52’s hail from Athens
  • Population: (as of 2015 estimate, including students) 123,912
