The region around Smithville in Central Texas has been inhabited for centuries. Indeed, artifacts have been found suggesting that early Native Americans lived here between 6,000 and 8,000 years ago. The town as it is today was not settled until about 1827, when folks started coming west in search of silver. Once the Taylor, Bastrop and Houston Railroad arrived in the 1880's, the town flourished as a rail town. As you wander through town on your way to and from your Smithville Texas Bed and Breakfast, be sure to admire the many Victorian homes and early 20th century brick buildings.
