Smithville is a small city located in central Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 3,817 residents. The city of Smithville bills itself as the "Heart of the Megalopolis," due to its' proximity between Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Bryon/College Station. Smithville is an old city, established in 1827, when Thomas Gazely settled there and opened a store. A community soon developed around the store and the name of Smithville was given to it in honor of another early resident, William Smith. Tourist attractions near Smithville include the James H. Long Railroad Museum and the Central Texas Museum of Automotive History. The Central Texas Museum of Automotive History is an automobile museum founded by Dick Burdick, a Texas businessman and car collector.
