About the Athens Community
As a rural-cosmopolitan community, Athens County offers the best of both worlds, big-city amenities wrapped in small town hospitality. The rolling hills of southeastern Ohio draw people from all over the world who wish to live and work in this pastoral, yet progressive county. Athens County, once a thriving coal community, now offers diverse employment opportunities and is home to Ohio University, a public institution with about 20,000 students on the Athens campus. Aside from Ohio University, Hocking College, O’Bleness Hospital and Holzer are just a sampling of the larger employers in the Athens area. The county also prides itself on the numerous entrepreneurs including artists, special food producers, researchers, consultants and contractors, who have established thriving small businesses. Our school systems offer state of the art facilities as well as a large variety of extracurricular activities to keep you and your family involved in our communities. The slower pace of Athens County, along with its cultural activities and scenic charm, make it a great place to visit, and an even better place to live!
