Late Nineteenth Century and Early Twentieth Century Houses
Early residents of Athens, particularly the Fanning's, Holroyd's, Vermillion's and French's, left their distinctive sense of design and practicality for generations to enjoy and emulate in construction of homes shown in this section. Many of the first homes are unfortunately in disrepair or have been demolished. These are illustrated in Change.
Many of the photographs in this section were taken in the 1960s. This is not a comprehensive treatment of late 19th century and early 20th century homes, but a sampling of those remembered from our years in Athens. Additional photographs that you may have of historic homes in and around Athens may be contributed by contacting us here. More contemporary homes are included in the next section. Photographs from recent walking tours are offered as well. Together these sections provide a glimpse into family life in Athens through the years.
