A variety of shopping and dining establishments surround the Limestone County Courthouse Square. Steeped in history, Athens is the second oldest city in Alabama, historical markers are placed around the square allowing you to step back in time to see what life was like years ago. A popular hangout, a touch of Mayberry, year round events, keeps this a heritage and shopping destination. Athens is half way between Nashville and Birmingham. Only a few miles from the interstate exit, it's worth the detour. Come see us on the Square.
