The Front Room, Honey’s, Olde World Bakery, Mexico Lindo, The Donut Shop, Pockets, Huebel’s, and Bone Spirits seem to be attracting more and more hungry/thirsty patrons to our business district.

The data indicates a positive trend (11.49% increase) year over year with Smithville leading the “municipal pack” achieving the highest percent change in Bastrop County. Sales tax dollars are used to make street / road repairs and help pay for community services like FIRE and POLICE. Remember…SHOP LOCAL - it makes a difference!!!
