Smyrna History Museum to reopen on Nov. 17

The Smyrna History Museum will open its newly revamped and expanded facility to the public on Nov. 17.

Join the Smyrna Historical Society for the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17. Light refreshments will be served.

The museum is located in a replica of the city’s former train depot. The museum first opened in 1992, and it moved to its current location in 1999.

Earlier this year, the family of Leon McElveen, a Smyrna resident and local historian, donated a prized model of a Civil War Shoupade fort to the museum. The model will be displayed in the updated museum.

The Smyrna Historical Society will host a grand re-opening celebration from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 17. The museum is located at 2861 Atlanta Rd. SE in Smyrna.
