Welcome to Smithville

Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce

Smithville, founded in 1829, is a small rural town with a population of just under 5000 people. Named after William Smith, an early settler in the town, Smithville was originally a town of seventeen families, although that number leapt once a railroad was built through the town. The town's historic commercial and residential areas remain largely unchanged since their construction, and the friendly atmosphere makes Smithville a pleasant place to sightsee and even consider as a hometown.
 

As of December 2, 2006, Smithville holds the record for baking the world's largest gingerbread man, which made it into the Guinness World Records. During the 16th Annual Festival of Lights, a 20-foot-tall gingerbread man, weighing 1,308 lbs. and 8 oz., was put together with help from the entire community. This accomplishment can be seen in the 2009 edition (p.124) of Guinness World Records, and the giant cookie sheet stands in the Train Park as a monument to the community's closeknit atmosphere.
