Village of Athens
Did You Know?
Athens is located at almost exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, as well as almost halfway between the Prime and 180th meridians.
The Village of Athens has a rich lumber and agricultural history. Located along Highway 97 in western Marathon County, this quiet community offers proximity to the Wausau metro area, as well as the cities of Medford, Merrill and Marshfield. The village is criss-crossed by trails for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, walking and ATV use in designated areas.
