A few years ago, I moved to Smyrna, SC, a community whose claim to fame is that it is SC’s smallest town, with a population of 45 as recorded in the 2010 census.
Down the road from our house on Highway #97 is a sign that reads, “South Carolina Scenic Byway.” The website states that the Western York County Scenic Byway “connects several US and SC routes to create a 66 mile journey through the historic and picturesque countryside of western York County. . . . The byway features numerous historical buildings . . . and beautiful rolling countryside.”
It appears that “our” sign marks the end of the Western York County Scenic Byway. However, I would like to encourage you to continue around the curve and travel through our little town.
Within a mile, you will find other interesting places, like the Smyrna Town Park which includes a picnic shelter, a baseball field, tennis court, and a gazebo.
The historic Smyrna ARP Church, first built in 1835, is located next to Smyrna Town Park.
Highway 97 curves again and continues on to Kings Creek, ending at Highway 5.
I hope you enjoy this short trip through Smyrna, SC.
