Now the Smyrna History Museum is closed to the public for a complete renovation of its exhibits.
This renovation will bring a chronological, narrative layout to the museum that will be accessible to all visitors, according to a city statement.
Museum Manager Jennie Eldredge will transition into a full-time position to oversee these projects.
In the next two months, a company will be hired to create and build all-new exhibits for the museum.
Requests for proposal are due on July 20.
The projected renovation start date is Sept. 3.
Until then, museum staff and volunteers will clean the museum storage space in preparation for the renovation.
The new Smyrna Historical Society, which was created to support and aid the museum in its operations, is playing a significant role in the museum’s renovation, according to the city statement.
Volunteers are asked to email SmyrnaHistoricalSociety@gmail.com.
