Village History

Old Village Hall

Smithton was founded in 1850. Originally there were two separate towns, Georgetown and Smithton, across a shared Main Street. After years of support for combining Georgetown and Smithton grew, and it was logical to call the new town by the name of Smithton.

For over 150 years, people have been moving here, building homes, and raising families, making Smithton the strong community it is. Whether you were born and raised in Smithton or because you just recently moved to Smithton, it is an amazing place to reside!
