The operation suffered a major fire in June 1946, as reported on the Smyrna Historical & Genealogical Society's website: "Stonewall Court dining room, noted for its fried chicken and fine museum collection, burned to the ground Monday afternoon. Antique weapons, firearms of 1860 vintage, Confederate uniforms and flags, and other relics were destroyed. Edgar Anderson, owner, placed the loss at $100,000. The building and its equipment represent a $35,00 loss." The second postcard seen below seems to show some of the historical items on display in the dining room.
