The Town has a rich history preserved in the Smyrna Town Hall-Opera House built in 1902 & restored in 2014. This authentic theater serves as a government facility, community center and concert hall. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Town contains a Village incorporated in 1828, a well-staffed volunteer fire department, family-owned farms, a working feed mill, a large saw mill facility.
