The current UGA School of Social Work building was built in 1858 to be the home of the Athens Manufacturing Company, also known as the Athens Factory. Prior to 1858, previous iterations of Athens Factory buildings were destroyed by fire (twice) and flood (once). Earlier, the site hosted grist and lumber mills.
