The City of Smyrna installed three displays containing selections from a collection of Civil War artifacts collected by Gerald Cox. Gerald Cox (1945-1996) was an Atlanta Civil War artifacts collector who grew up in a family of Civil War historians. As a boy in the 1950s, he spent many weekends in Smyrna and visited the Carmichael Plantation, near I-285, where he searched the area of the battle that reached Atlanta, having passed through Smyrna in 1864. He found his first relic, a lead .58-caliber bullet and was hooked. He and his family continued exploring, building a huge collection of artifacts through the years. A portion of the collection is now displayed on the 2nd floor at Smyrna City Hall (2800 King Street, Smyrna Ga.) with two additional displays on the 2nd levels of the Smyrna Public Library (100 Village Green Circle, Smyrna Ga.) and Brawner Hall (3180 Atlanta Road, Smyrna Ga.). Find information at www.SmyrnaCity.com / Residents / History and Points of Interest / Cox Armstrong Collection. Handicapped Accessible. Hours are 8am-5pm. Free admission and parking.

Perry Buzzard Drop - 12/31/14 - 1/1/15 at 8pm-12:30am
New Year's Eve 2014 will not be your typical "Crystal Ball Drop," in Downtown Perry. Inspired by the creativity of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, home of the Giant Bologna Drop, and Brasstown, North Carolina, where a live possum drops at the stroke of midnight to ring in the New Year, we sought something unique that we could claim. We looked west to our neighbors in Mobile, Alabama and admired the Moonpie they so proudly venerate each New Year's Eve, and as we thought and searched our hearts, it became clear: We will drop…a Buzzard!
