Located 70 miles southeast of Atlanta, Athens is the sixth-largest city in Georgia. Originally settled in the 18th century as a trading post on the Oconee River the city is known today for its college culture and is home to the state’s most well-known public school, the University of Georgia. The university was instated in 1801 and graduated its first class in 1804. In 1806 Athens was officially incorporated as a town and, with the help of cotton mills, began to commercially develop. The city was connected by one of Georgia’s first railroads to Augusta in 1841 and to Atlanta shortly after helping to grow the influence of the university, establishing Athens as one of the most important cities in the area. Following the Civil War, the railroad system grew significantly in the city, helping to grow many communities near the city. During the 1880s Athen’s population grew significantly, leading to the implementation of public schools and a police department. During World War 2 buildings and runways were constructed by the US Navy to provide training facilities for pilots, and was chosen as the site of the Navy Supply Corps School in 1954 until its closing in 2011. The former site of the Navy Supply Corps now houses the University of Georgia College of Public Health.
