Welcome to Smithville, Bastrop County Texas!
The village of "old Smithville" was laid out on 640 acres of land granted to Thomas J. Gazely and Lewis Lomas. There were mercantile stores, dry goods shops and a Masonic Lodge. In 1876, the first post office was established. The settlement was called Smithville. The Taylor, Bastrop and Houston Railroad, later a part of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas System (MKT/Katy), arrived in 1886 and the town grew up between the tracks and the river. Legend has it that a coin was tossed to decide if the name would be changed to Burlesonville for Murray Burleson, who gave the land for the railroad depot. The coin toss resulted in "Smithville" being retained as the name, apparently in honor of pioneer settler William Smith. The town was incorporated in 1895.
