The town of Smyrna has its roots in the early 19th century and began as an agrarian community. The American Civil War played an important role in the area due to its railroad station which lies between Nashville and Chattanooga. One of the major events of the war for the town involved the Confederate States hero Sam Davis who after being charged with spying gave up his life instead of giving any information to the Union Army. He was captured Nov. 20, 1863 and was hanged by Union forces Nov. 27. The Sam Davis Plantation, located on 160 acres of well-maintained farmland, is the town's most important historical site.
Prior to their dissolution, RegionsAir (formerly Corporate Airlines) and Capitol Air were headquartered in Smyrna. Smyrna will also serve as the US production site for the Nissan Leaf. Nissan's goal is that the plant in Smyrna will eventually produce 150,000 cars, and 200,000 electric car batteries per year.
The median income for a household in the town was $44,405, and the median income for a family was $51,550.
