SMYRNA – The Smyrna Historical Committee’s vision includes some day restoring the integrity of the town’s hall and creating a museum space for the public.
First, the recently-formed group needs more members, said Smyrna Town Historian and committee member Robert Matteson.
“Eventually we’ll be going after grants in order to do the things we need to do,” said Matteson. “We’d like to get more people involved from the beginning, to come in with more suggestions.”
Still in its infancy, the committee is scheduled to meet with a representative from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation at the town hall Oct. 29 to gather information on the technical and legal aspects of forming a preservation society. Matteson said anyone considering getting involved is encouraged to attend.
