Athens County Historical Society & Museum
The Athens County Historical Society & Museum works to collect, preserve, and display items of historical nature and to promote the study, interpretation, and understanding of the history of Athens County and its people, and to provide an organizational structure for affiliations by groups with similar interests. We have over 40,000 items in our collection.
The Museum also has a library of local genealogy and histories. There is truly a wealth of knowledge here - and many friendly volunteers waiting to help. Please stop by.
