History

Smith County 1858. This county lies above the 32d degree of north latitude, and in the north-eastern part of the State ; it is a well-watered county, and has plenty of timber ; the soil is fertile and productive, and climate healthy. Tyler, the county-seat, is directly on the line of the Pacific Railroad ; it is already a place of considerable importance, and contains many buildings of taste and beauty. The public square is very large, and in the centre is a natural mound, on which the courthouse is built. Education has received the especial attention of the people of Tyler, as is evidenced by the commodious buildings devoted to learning. - Braman's information about Texas, 1858
