About Us

In the Beginning:

On February 23, 1832, the Virginia General Assembly created Smyth County from parts of Washington and Wythe Counties. Smyth County is named after General Alexander Smyth who once represented this area in Congress.

Where we're going:

We value your input. As we work to make Smyth County the best, we want to ensure that our residents have easy access to the information that they need--when they need it. With that in mind, we have redesigned the County's Web Site to make it easier to navigate and more user friendly.
