Ideally located in the area between the UGA Health Sciences Campus and Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital, Normaltown got it’s name from the former State Normal School, which trained school teachers in the “Norms” of education. Contrary to its dreary moniker, this thriving neighborhood is one of the hottest and most rapidly evolving parts of Athens.
Adjacent to both the Boulevard and Cobbham neighborhoods, Normaltown residents enjoy walkable neighborhoods, a slew of hip restaurants and bars, and convenient access to all of Athens and the Loop. Nearby Bishop Park offers residents close proximity to ballfields, tennis and basketball courts, walking trails and a playground and pool area. Saturday mornings the indoor tennis pavilion is converted to host the Athens Farmer’s Market with food trucks, fresh, locally grown vegetables, flowers and hand crafted goods.
Close to The Bottleworks, Downtown and 5 Points, Normaltown is in the center of all that Athens holds dear. Charming older homes are being renovated and new in-fill construction is being built thereby enhancing the area. Located in the highly praised Chase St Elementary School Zone, Normaltown is highly sought after, perfectly located, and quickly becoming the “go-to” choice for families, young professionals, and empty nesters alike.
