Facts about Smithville, MO
With parts in both Clay and Platte counties, Smithville is a city that's included in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. While the city's history dates back to the 1820s, it would be a few decades before it officially became incorporated. As of the 2020 census, Smithville is home to more than 10,400 people.
The first recorded activity in the area was in 1822. At that time, Humphrey and Nancy Smith, along with their six sons and a daughter, made the trek from New York. The plan was to secure land and build a home. Smith was often referred to as "Yankee" by a number of other settlers coming from the American South at the time.
The first name for the settlement was Smith's Mill, named after the flour mill established in what is today Clay County. By the 1830s, Smithville was the more commonly used name, and the one used for formal incorporation in 1868.
Flooding and fires were common for a number of decades. This came to an end when the US Army Corps of Engineers Impounded Smith Lake, creating a 7,200 acre lake sporting 175 miles of shoreline. The development is now home to a number of key economic and recreational concerns, including fishing, swimming, boating, fish and wildlife management, and a steady water supply for the community.
