A horse sculpture in the middle of a field. That's about all there is to it. You can walk up to it and you can take photos, so that's kinda cool.

This sculpture was apparently on UGA's campus at first, but moved here to a field, pretty much in the middle of nowhere. You drive out to the sculpture, look at it, climb on it if you like, contemplate the meaning of life, and go home.

Although technically not in Athens (it's in Watkinsville) this is a don't miss if you are in the area. It's really unique. I won't go into the history here because, well, Google. Pictures don't do it justice. It is one of those things you just...More

The Iron Horse stands in a field about 12 miles south of Watkinsville, GA. It is on private property. There is room to park just off the busy roadway. Signs are posted to keep people out of the field. It was worth a trip just...More

This is not even in Athens, let alone Clarke county. It's 15-20 minutes away in Greene County just past the Oconee County line.
