Inscription.  
The history of Athens is marred by many buildings and blocks being destroyed by fire.

Athens fought fires with one hose cart until 1910 when this property was purchased for the location of the first Fire Hall and Recorder's office. Later, due to the narrow width of this building, trucks had to back in one in front of the other. This building was in use until the Athens Fire Department moved to its new home on N. White Street in 1963.
 
Erected by Main Street Athens Project.
