The Smyrna History Museum, 2861 Atlanta Road SE in Smyrna, will open its newly revamped and expanded facility to the public on Sunday.

The Smyrna Historical Society will host a grand re-opening celebration Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. 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. 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.
