FOSL Sponsors Lecture Entitle “A History of Aunt Fanny's Cabin: Nationally Known Local Restaurant”

Tommy H. Jones, retired architectural historian in the National Park Service's Southeast Regional Office is the expert on the history of this unique local eatery.  He presented “A History of Aunt Fanny's Cabin: Nationally Known Local Restaurant” for today’s First Sunday Lecture. 

Originally situated on Campbell Road two miles south of downtown Smyrna, Aunt Fanny's Cabin Restaurant was founded in 1941 by socialite Isolene Campbell on the grounds of Argyle Farm, the wealthy Campbell family's local country retreat. This local restaurant, which specialized in southern cooking, was for over four decades one of the most popular eateries in greater Atlanta and arguably the most famous landmark in Smyrna.

The First Sunday Lecture Series is sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library.
