Watkinsville, GA

Watkinsville, GA is an area that Pianos In Tune, LLC visits frequently for piano tuning, piano repair and piano maintenance.

Watkinsville, GA is both the largest city and county seat of Oconee County.    It was originally the seat of Clarke County until Athens laid claim to that title in 1872.  This action angered and motivated the locals to vote to create a new county named after the Oconee River which formed its easternmost border so that Watkinsville could once again enjoy the status of being a county seat town.

This charming city retains a small town atmosphere and is located only minutes south of Athens and about an hour east of Atlanta.  Visitors can take a step back in time by visiting places such as the Elder Mill Covered Bridge, the historic Eagle Tavern, the William Daniel House and Ashford Manor.

In the early 1990’s Watkinsville was revitalized when it applied for and received a Transportation Enhancement Project grant that reworked and beautified its downtown business area, adding brick sidewalks, planters, simulated antique lamp posts, benches, new curbing and much needed landscaping.  Now, this area is known as Town Center and is home to Ashford Manor and their “Concerts on the Lawn”, the historic Haygood House, and restaurants such as “Girasoles”, “Chops and Hops” and “Mirko Pasta”.

There are so many art attractions in Watkinsville and Oconee County that this area has become affectionately known as “The Artland of Georgia”.  Art aficionados can enjoy a wide variety of workshops and galleries that range from pottery and paintings to hand blown glass.  Art attractions in the area include the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation, The Chappelle Gallery, The Farmington Depot Art Gallery, Greenbriar Pottery, and R Woods Studio.

Other funs things to do in the area include Washington Farms, Thomas Orchards, Greenbriar Creek Christmas Tree Farm, Simonton Bridge Daylily Farm, Whippoorwill Blueberries and the Georgia Nature Center.
