Athens is a town in eastern Greene County, bordered on the east by the Hudson River, the south by the Town of Catskill, the west by the Town of Cairo and the north by the Town of Coxsackie.
According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 28.8square miles and a population of 3,991, 97% white. The median income for a household in the town was $39,719. The per capita income for the town was $20,910.
The Town of Athens was established on February 25th 1815. Its use as a ferry terminus was diminished after the Rip Van Winkle bridge was built in 1935; the ferry was closed in 1947. Athens’ layout and architecture have remained essentially the same since its heyday in the late 19th century. It has more than 300 buildings on national and state historic registers and has the feel of a living museum of American architecture, with examples of many of the predominant styles of the 18th and 19th centuries, including Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, Stick, Second Empire, Folk Victorian and Queen Anne.
The small and friendly community is made up of an eclectic group of artisans, business people, and families who all enjoy the beauty of this historic area and the essence of small town life.
