The first historical references to the Smyrna Camp Ground refer to a religious retreat of sorts welcoming all denominations. The Civil War had a Battle of Smyrna Camp Ground, but the municipality of Smyrna was finally incorporated in 1872.
Prior to the war, railroads had been laid in the area, also the area was sometimes called Varner’s Station and Ruff’s Siding.
The Ruff Family bought a mill near the Concord Covered Bridge.
Geographically, Smyrna is just outside the perimeter under Marietta and north of Mableton. Most of Smyrna is north of the East-West Connector, but a residential area is south of the connector.
Sometimes called the Jonquil City, the Jonquil is a flower in the daffodil family.
