20 comments on “A to Z Blogging Challenge: Athens, Texas

  1. I’m really enjoying this challenge thus far and meeting new people and checking out their blogs.

    You’re quite right, I don’t think I knew there was an Athens in the U.S. until a few years ago, otherwise, like you mentioned, everyone just thinks it’s Athens, Greece you’re talking about.

    I’d love to go to Texas sometime, I’m from Canada but I haven’t travelled much into the U.S. if I’m honest with you but there are so many beautiful places.

    Have a great weekend hun. 🙂

  2. I’ve never been to Athens Texas but I have been to Houston and Dallas. I find it funny that that one of the founders of Athens was a woman with the first name of Dull. I wonder if Dull was a common first name back then? Athens being the “home of the original hamburger” that’s quite a claim to fame! 😀

    I’m visiting from the A to Z Challenge.

    • Yes It must have been a very normal name for that time period!! Amazing how each time I research a town, I find interesting facts about the community.
      Thanks for stopping by!
