As the county seat of DeKalb County, Smithville is also its hub. The town hosts the offices of county government and the local courts on its town square and is home to most of the county’s public schools, many churches, major retail stores, medical facilities and business services, including the main office of Center Hill Realty.
With a population of nearly 4000, Smithville has a small town feel to it without giving up modern amenities. Its population contains a balance of lifelong residents as well as newcomers attracted by a combination of affordable living and small town values. Recreation facilities include Greenbrook Park with its pastoral duck pond and walking path and the Smithville Municipal Golf Course with pool and tennis courts.
One weekend each summer, Smithville welcomes music lovers the world over to the Smithville Fiddler’s Jamboree. For two days, the population can swell to as many as 100,000 who gather in the shade of the courthouse lawn and the surrounding streets for some good, clean fun. This celebration of traditional Appalachian music and crafts has introduced many visitors to the town and area they eventually call home. The easy pace of living and local brand of Southern hospitality keeps most attendees coming back year after year.
As far as homes go, the town’s real estate encompasses a combination of spacious 19th century homes, a range of styles popular in the 2Oth century and the latest designs in modern developments. Most homes here have ample yard space for the flower or vegetable gardens that are such pleasurable parts of summer Southern living.
