The efforts of our founding members have had a lasting impact, enabling the Smyrna Historical Society to grow in both scope and influence. From securing crucial funding and curating remarkable exhibits to initiating educational programs and community outreach, their contributions continue to resonate.
Honoring Their Contribution
Every year, we host a special Founding Members Gala where we honor the initial team and introduce new initiatives inspired by their original vision. This event serves as both a tribute to our roots and a launch pad for future endeavors.
