Scout House is a historic 1930s-era structure on Washington Street owned by the City of Athens and leased to Athens Arts League. The City of Athens has challenged Athens Arts League to raise funds to renovate the iconic structure and re-purpose it into a music venue that supports music education in Athens and Limestone County, offers music events, and honors Limestone County musical heritage.
