Smyrna

Smyrna, Tennessee is a suburb located just east of Interstate 24 along Murfreesboro Pike and it is situated 20 miles to the southeast of Nashville.  Like many small towns in Middle Tennessee, Smyrna has experienced exceptional population growth.  Over the last 10 years the number of residents has grown by 56% and now has roughly 40,000 people calling the city home.

Smyrna has not been immune to the recent national housing crisis.  Like much of the nation, this region saw home prices decline for a period of time as homeowners struggled to sell their property.  And while there are pockets within the greater Nashville area that have seen a speedier recovery, the current market trends in Smyrna have stabilized.  Home values have remained steady and housing inventory has slowly been decreasing which is a signal of the increased number of sales in the region.  And, with an average sales price well under $200,000 it’s easy to see why this area has seen an explosion in its population.

In addition to its affordability, families who live in Smyrna are also pleased with the education their children receive.  There are a number of schools in town and all of them have received strong parental reviews.  On a scale of 1 to 10, the schools have earned an average rating of 7.3.

During their free time the locals enjoy testing their golf skills at the Smyrna Golf Course.  There is an 18-hole regulation course, a 9-hole executive course, a driving range, a putting green and practice facilities.  And for those who don’t hit the links, Smyrna offers a variety of other recreational activities.  Percy Priest Lake lies just north of the city and The Town Centre in Smyrna boasts a Fitness Center, which for a set fee, offers a comprehensive workout facility, steam rooms, saunas and whirlpools. Classes are also available for aerobics, yoga, and karate. Plus there are tennis and racquetball courts and an outdoor swimming pool.

There are two parks in town: Volunteer Park and Lee Victory Rec Park.  These two parks combined offer outdoor lighted softball and baseball fields, lighted football fields and tennis courts, picnic areas and pavilions, playground equipment, a boat ramp and concession stands.

History plays a large role in the significance of many small towns throughout Middle Tennessee and Smyrna is no different.   The town’s roots date back to the mid-1800s when it was an agricultural community.  There were numerous large farms and plantations in the area. The Sam Davis Home, which was one of the most noteworthy estates, is still standing and it is now considered to be the most historic landmark in Smyrna; it has even earned the designation of being a state historical site.

With a mixture of history and growth, Smyrna’s future looks promising.  Its proximity to Nashville combined with convenient air, road and rail transportation, make Smyrna a smart choice for both businesses and residents.
