VONORE, Tenn. (AP) - The museum at Fort Loudon State Historic Park is set to reopen to visitors.

The public is being welcomed back to the park Saturday and Sunday as the facility hosts its Living History Garrison and Museum grand re-opening.

A grant from the Grubb-Sumner Fund for Monroe County paid for renovations at the park’s museum. In the past year, park staff and contractors have added new displays in the park’s powder magazine, armory and a new diorama of the Tellico Blockhouse.

At the fort, a “roll call” summoning re-enactment soldiers to their posts, just as the troops did 250 years ago, will signal the beginning of the living history weekend. Musket and artillery firing demonstrations will take place several times throughout the two-day event.
