Smyrna - Georgia - US


SMYRNA, Ga. - Feb. 17, 2014 - PRLog -- Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America Smyrna,from local authors Harold Smith and Kara Hunter-Oden, features over 200 historic photographs that tell the stories of this historic Cobb County city.

In 1836, the State of Georgia authorized construction of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. The railroad helped establish a permanent location, mid-way between Atlanta and Marietta which became Smyrna and started its transformation from frontier village to a growing community. The City of Smyrna was incorporated in 1872 and is well known as The Jonquil City of the South for the thousands of jonquils that flourish in gardens and along the streets in early spring.174 years after pioneers established the log cabins and farms that became Smyrna in the early 18th century, the city today consistently ranks as one of the most desirable areas in Metro Atlanta to live and raise a family.

The authors regard Images of America: Smyrna as “a present to the City of Smyrna on the occasion of its 150th anniversary of the Civil War Battle of Smyrna fought on July 4, 1864” which they are delighted to give to the community.
