Smyrna, Tennessee is located in Rutherford County. The town was first established in the 1800s and was part of a flourishing agricultural area. When the railroad came through, it was a refueling station, and land adjacent to the depot was sold and the city began to grow. The town was first incorporated in 1869, but that rescinded just a few years following. It was incorporated again in 1915. Agriculture continued to be the main economic endeavor until the Army-Air Force base was established there in 1941. The area grew even more and in 1969 the development of Percy Priest lake offered not only water for the area but additional recreation. The city has a current estimated population of 48,596.
