Significance: The Athens Water Wheel is the oldest structure still standing in the industrialized area that developed south of the railroad station and West Union Street after the railroad was opened between Athens and Marietta. The structure housed a variety of industries from its building to the present, including the Campbell and Brannon Foundry (1898-1899), the Athens Foundry and Machine Company (1900-1923), and the Ohio Fuel Gas Company (1929-1962).
