The Town of Smyrna finds its roots in the mid 1800's as an agrarian community with many large farms and plantations flourishing in the area. One of the more significant plantations, the Sam Davis Home, is Smyrna's most historic landmark and is designated as a state historical site.
The economic slowdown that resulted from the closure of the Sewart AFB was only temporary. The economy of Smyrna prospered during the 1970's and promised to improve in the 80's following the announcement of Nissan, the first Japanese automobile manufacturer to build a plant in the United States, to make its home in Smyrna. Nissan has been a good corporate citizen over the years providing steady employment to approximately 6,000 workers.
The economic future of Smyrna appears bright given its strategic geographic location. The availability of ample utilities and supporting major transportation facilities (air, road and rail) makes Smyrna an attractive location for business and industry.
