Have you have ever wondered how Smyrna got its name? Well, it is all due to an early resident named Silas Tucker. When the railroad depot was built in 1851, it was constructed on land owned by Mr. Tucker. Silas, who was a member of Smyrna Presbyterian Church suggested using the name Smyrna for the new town.
Silas is currently buried in Mapleview Cemetery. I say currently, because Silas died in 1863 and Mapleview opened in 1916. Several of the smaller family cemeteries in the area have been moved to Mapleview as the Town of Smyrna grew.
