Thursday, Athens City School students and teachers started work on a mural in downtown Athens.

The project will continue, weather permitting, for the next few weeks. The mural will be near Wildwood Deli in Athens and will showcase pieces of the town's history. Beverly Bobo is an art teacher at Athens High School. She wrote to ask for the 2,000 dollar grant that will make the mural possible.

"You get to showcase art, showcase the history of your hometown, and we thought that was really important," Bobo told WAAY.

The mural will also be a part of a scavenger hunt at the Athens Bicentennial Celebration on November 17th.
