Smyrna, Then and Now
Founded in 1768 as a crossroads for commerce, the Town of Smyrna with its access to the Delaware Bay made it an attractive area to establish and grow a business for farmers, merchants and shippers alike. Throughout the years, Smyrna continued to prosper with its new wharves and warehouses, becoming a transportation center noted for its grain, lumber and peaches.
Today, set against a historic backdrop that reflects 200 years of architecture and enterprise, Smyrna is a growing, progressive community of a little over 10,000 residents, with excellent schools, forward-thinking town management and tremendous opportunity for the future.
