“Interesting Setting in historic home”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

A very friendly volunteer greets you when you enter this visitor center which is set in a historic 1800's home. Many brochures available but the home is sparsely furnished with no written descriptions in the rooms so little information available.

“Very Informative”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Evelyn is wonderful! She relays wonderful information about Athens in very professional and hospitable manner. Having a Summer boring day? - Visit the Welcome Center, grab one of their hundreds of pamphlets for local attractions and make a day trip!

“Got lost looking for the botanical gardens.”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

Students there were very helpful with directions and tips on where to eat on the south end of campus. Looked nice for the holdidays. No rush. You can take your time looking at brochures. We took a walk on the grounds.
