Athens, Texas is the Official Home of the Hamburger. Uncle Fletch Davis invented the Hamburger and shared his invention at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The Texas Legislature has proclaimed Athens as the Official Home of the Hamburger. Over the years, Athens has hosted an Uncle Fletch Hamburger Festival to the delight of folks locally and from around the World. Come join us on September 22, 2018 from 10am to 3pm as we celebrate Athens as the Home of the Hamburger.
