History

A worker using a candle to check for air leaks started a fire among control wires, causing a temporary threat to operational control of the reactor. Athens was traditionally a cotton and railroad town, but since the local aerospace boom of the 1950s and 1960s it has increasingly entered the orbit of nearby industry center Huntsville, Alabama as the area's cotton production has steadily declined. The school became affiliated with the Methodist church in 1842, and was eventually renamed Athens Female College. Athens was the home of Governor George Houston, Alabama’s first post-Reconstruction Democratic governor from 1874 through 1878. It provides many jobs to the area and most of the electricity for the Huntsville-Decatur Metro Area.
