Athens Georgia: A Treasury of Historic Architecture

Photography By Mari L. Berry

Commentary By Lisa Vogel

A large (10.2" x 9") paperback book filled with photos of Athens, Georgia homes and buildings. Covers show some wear, including some creasing at top right corner edge. 56 pages.

From the commentary at the beginning of the book: To enjoy the benefits of citizenship in ancient Athens, Greece, individuals were required to pledge that they would "transmit this city not less, but greater, and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us." If Athens, Georgia held citizens to that oath, the men and women who have made up the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation over the past 25 years would no doubt qualify as model citizens. With a collective vision of the community, a passionate devotion to historic resources, and years of hard work, they have helped to preserve much of what makes Athens Athens.
