    Smith County, established December 23, 1833, is located in the south central part of Mississippi. It was formed from some of the last of the land of the Choctaw Indian Cessions, under the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. Smith County was named for Major David Smith, a Private in the Revolutionary War who fought at Kings Mountain, Cowpens, and Euthaw Springs.

    The county has had four courthouses; the first three were destroyed by fires. The present neo-classical brick courthouse was built in 1912.
