A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Athens ...
Although we found mention of Athens during our research, we have little information about it.<1> We believe that Athens had a post office at one time. We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that the community still exists..
While we are confident that Athens was located in Jewell County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Athens to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Athens - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Athens, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Athens might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Athens would be found within the (785) area code.
