Beechwood Airpark

Athens, AL



Beechwood Airpark in Athens, Alabama is a new 2600 foot turf runway in a great location. Numerous new homes are being developed in the immediate area, some priced in the low $100,000's with others up to $950,000. Most of the growth has happened in the last 10 years as this has become a choice recreation area. Close to Wheeler Lake (which is part of the TVA system of dams on the Tennessee River). The Tennessee Valley Authority still owns much of the land fronting Wheeler Lake and the Elk River.  The TVA land is mostly a wildlife preserve yet some is open to hunting, hiking and camping. Nature lovers are welcome!
