History

In 1934, Athens became the first city to get its electricity from the Tennessee Valley Authority. In May 1862, during the American Civil War War, Athens was seized by Union forces under the command of Ivan Turchaninov John Basil Turchin, a Russian émigré. Limestone County was also created by an act of the Alabama Territorial Legislature in 1818. During Reconstruction, Athens was the home of the Trinity School, a school founded for the children of former slaves by the American Missionary Association. The occupation was eased after Turchin’s superiors intervened.
