FOSL Sponsors Historical and Architectural Walking Tour of Smyrna's Williams Park Neighborhood

The Williams Park neighborhood of Smyrna (the streets lying east of Atlanta Road, opposite Market Village) contains the largest concentration of older structures in the city, many dating from the 1885 to 1925 period, a unique architectural ensemble that could well qualify as Smyrna's first National Register Historic District. 

The area also has a fascinating history. Casey Clavin, who has given much attention to the architectural history of this interesting neighborhood, and local historian Bill Marchione, co-narrated today’s walking tour of the city's oldest neighborhood, a tour that also featured visits to the interiors of some of Williams Park's most interesting residences.

The Williams Park walking tour was sponsored by the Friends of the Smyrna Library (FOSL) with assistance from the Smyrna Arts and Cultural Council (SACC), as one of the Smyrna Library's regular "First Sunday" programs.
