Southern College Towns: Athens and the University of Georgia

University of Georgia

The striking pink T.R.R. Cobb House spent two decades at Stone Mountain. Now, the historical home of the man considered Athen’s “first citizen” stands two blocks from its original downtown location.

University of Georgia

While venturing through the school’s east campus, stop by the Georgia Museum of Art. What began in UGA’s old library as a collection of 100 paintings, now boasts more than 8,000 objects housed in a fresh, modern building.
