CoW; June 2019 Athens, TX

Not far from DFW you can leave the big city and enter the Piney Woods; Welcome to Athens Texas; centered nicely between Tyler, Canton, Palestine, & Corsicana @ the southeast end of  Cedar Creek Reservoir the beauty and serenity of East Texas puts a halt to the hustle & bustle of Big D.  Just four months after Texas was annexed by the US, Athens TX was established in 1846 and became the county seat of Henderson County in 1850

History claims that a man known as Uncle Fletcher Davis created the first hamburger in the late 1880’s at a small café on the downtown square. According to legend, Uncle Fletch took his sandwich to the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis where the sandwich was first introduced. The McDonald’s Hamburger University has given this historic evidence their stamp of approval and in 2006 a bill was introduced into the Texas Legislature to make Athens, Texas, “Original Home of the Hamburger.”
