dwelling in athens is an instagram account that is dedicated to shining light on historic homes in and around athens, georgia. i created the account a few months ago when i realized how often i was snapping photos of cool houses around town. it has now evolved to be something that really brings the community of athens together to acknowledge our history. i love posting the big grand victorians and also small mill houses on side streets. all of these homes and the stories they tell are important, beautiful, and need to be recognized by future generations.
