About Smyrna

History The town of Smyrna was founded in 1806 by John B. White, who named it after the ancient Greek city of Smyrna (modern day Izmir). The name is also a reference to the Biblical passage "And my spirit shall not always strive with man" from Genesis 6:3, which refers to Noah's curse upon his son Ham for seeing him naked and telling his brothers about it. This passage is sometimes interpreted as God's condemnation of miscegenation between races and/or interracial marriage; this interpretation may have influenced White in naming the town.
