“An Athens Staple”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Not something you would want to make a special trip to Athens for, but if you're here anyway, it's great to "show off" & explain the story behind it!

“Brief look at unique side of Athens”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

This site can be hard to find as there is no signage! On Finley Street just off Broad Street, up the cobblestone hill. You will probably look around and wonder where this site is, but it is the tree surrounded by a small brick wall that is in the middle of the street!! Really. Get out of your car and read the plaque. It is interesting, but you have to take it for what it is worth. You will spend about 5 minutes here. Enjoy the location. A charming part of residential Athens.

“Better things in Athens to see.”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

Cobble street was painful. Better trees to see if in Athens. Ginko on Milledge Circle is far more inspiring. Just goggle it and tour UGA or Botanical Gardens for trees.
