Athens is the county seat for Henderson county.  It is home of the Original Hamburger.  Athens is located in the piney woods of east Texas.  The area covers around 17 square miles and the population as of the 2016 Census was 12,811.

Lake Athens is a 1.799 acre lake and allows waterfront home ownership and boathouses.  The lake is a spring fed lake so the lake levels are more constant.
