In 2013, Smithville Texas was awarded a prestigious Cultural District designation by the Texas Commission on the Arts. We did this video to highlight some of what makes Smithville so great, and it was submitted to the TCA as part of the cultural district application.
This video includes footage captured at events over the course of two years in Smithville. One of the latest events was the Smithville Veterans Memorial Park dedication ceremony, which happened on May 27, 2013.
Smithville now joins Bastrop (awarded in 2012) and 22 other districts in Texas.
