Downtown Athens

Downtown Athens is a wonderful asset to our community. Our historic downtown contains a variety of beautiful buildings built in the early 1900’s that surround the 1913 Henderson County Courthouse, one of the most unique courthouses in Texas!  In Athens, all roads lead to downtown, making it truly the heart of the City.  The result is a bustling mix of activity and energy making the area a destination for tourists and locals alike.  Come explore the streets of downtown to check out attractions like the Henderson County Historical Museum, art galleries with local and regional artists’ work, antique shops, retail, and more!
