      Luvici's Restaurant, Athens Alabama   Luvici’s IS Southern comfort food.  Owners,  Jeffrey and Patty Sandlin's mission statement is simple:  “Because Nice Matters”.  And nice they are.                                     I was introduced to Luvici’s by my Mother and her best running mate, Alice.  They both are widowers and don’t travel far from their condos in Athens Alabama.  This happens to be their favorite spot.  I must admit, I was a bit leery trusting their judgement but joined my Mom for lunch there, just in case they were right.  I’m so darned glad I did!                                      I fell in love with Luvici’s the moment I stepped in the door.  Kindness and charm welcomed me.  From the brick walls to the hardwood flooring, the atmosphere was warm.  Our service wa...

    U.G. White Hardware Store, Athens, Alabama A step back in time and a stroll down memory lane.  That is what you’ll feel when you step into U.G. White Hardware Store in Athens Alabama.  Located on the square in Athens,  warm memories will surround you the moment you step inside!                                    U.G. White Hardware originally began in 1917 and was known as U.G. White Hardware and Implement Co. on south Marion Street.   The original proprietor, Ulysses Grant White, lost his right arm in a farming accident.  Mr. Grant went on to create a business that has influenced Athens, Alabama.   Athens was a  prominent cotton and railroad hub for the Limestone County seat.       After twenty years Mr. White sought a more strategic location and in 1937 bought and remodeled the co...

Athens Alabama is a quaint small town of approximately 20,000 people in the center of North Alabama approximately 10 miles from both Decatur or Madison. Athens is also one of the oldest cities in the State of Alabama and as such, many homes in the central part of town are part of an historic district. Many of these homes date back to the antebellum period of the early to mid 1800's. Depending on exactly where your place of employment may be, Athens offers a 20 to 30 minute commute to either Decatur or Research Park in Huntsville.  Many who enjoy the feel of a small town community find this commute a small price to pay. The community is also very proud of their School System which includes Athens High School within the city limits.  Athens is also the home of Athens State University whic...
