The following is a summary of history the City of Smyrna:
Cobb County was at one time equally divided
between the State of Georgia and the Cherokee Indians. In 1831 a settlement was reached that deeded all the land to the State
of Georgia. Shortly after, settlers began drifting into this area and in 1832 a campground, at which members of all denominations
could worship, was permanently established. Soon the present site of the City of Smyrna became the center of the social and
religious life of the surrounding area. From this campground the Methodist Church was organized in 1838.
Smyrna was first
known as Ruffs Siding and later Varners Station. Eventually, the name Smyrna was given to the campground area. The name "Smyrna"
is found in the Bible's book of Revelation as the name of one of Paul the Apostle's seven churches in Asia.
once played a fairly significant role in Smyrna’s development. In 1836 the construction of a railroad began through
Cobb County, and by the date of completion in 1842, the railroad had started Smyrna on its change from a frontier village
to a growing community. The railroad helped establish the permanent location of the city and provided work for the townspeople.
Gristmills and factories were also established in the 1840’s. These mills and factories played a prominent role in the
early growth of the community. However, by the close of the 19th century, Smyrna was primarily an agrarian community. While
there was industry and the railroad, the economy was by then largely based on agriculture.
Smyrna's first brick building
was erected in 1850. It was originally built as a boys’ academy, called Smyrna Institute. The building was later used
as an officers’ training school, a hospital, and a house of worship. When General Sherman marched through Cobb County
in 1864, it was the only building standing in the downtown area. This building stood on the site of the old Masonic Lodge
that once stood on West Spring. On that site will soon be built the newest mixed-use development for the revitalized and active
In 1872, the State of Georgia incorporated Smyrna as a municipality, the boundaries then extending for one
mile in every direction from the Smyrna Boys’ Academy. The first city election was held in 1873. Smyrna also boasts
having had the first female mayor elected in the State of Georgia, Lorena Pruitt, in 1946.
The Mission of the Night Life ( NightLife
), RMC Network
[ Cultural Democracy ]
is the very heart of this system, and through the internet a free flow flow of information network has already been established
to allow this to happen. What is being done, is that an intiative based upon cultural democracy has been now established for
your the community online user to participate. More importantly, for those who are contributing valued information getting
known on the internet too!
All too often, several events are simply not know by travelers, tourist, or those who are
looking for communities to move and live. It is envisioned by this process that events become both known, and popular at the
sametime. Moreover, new talent is happening all the time, and thus should likewise be promoted too!
Beyond that, is
the emergence of the event provider, and thus system become even more crucial, and for two very important respects.
The promotion of the community itself, as represented in its entertainment value.
Two: The economic activity it establishes
by which industries are likewise locally developed.
Thus this crucial initiative and where it starts for you is on
