Athens is home to the state's first aviator. Ben Epps built airplanes out of his bicycle shop in downtown Athens and later created the Athens Airport in 1917. The Athens-Ben Epps Airport was named in his honor after his final crash in 1937. We are the only airport in Athens, and are located 10-15 minutes away from the downtown Athens area, where you can eat local food and find a good band to listen to during your stay!
