ATHENS, Ga. (Feb. 13, 2017) - Fifty years ago, the house that now stands as the Athens Welcome Center was loaded onto a flatbed truck and moved one block to avoid the wave of urban renewal sweeping downtown Athens.
That stone's-throw of a drive across Dougherty Street became a marathon of sorts for a handful of dedicated preservationists. Moving the Church-Waddel-Brumby House set into motion an effort to reclaim historic structures across Athens, and 50 years later that spirit continues. Founded in 1967 to “save the oldest house in Athens,” the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation is celebrating its golden anniversary throughout 2017 with a slate of events for all Athenians.
