    Learn About "Smitty" of Smithville

    by Basaic Written Mar 28, 2016

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On 2 December 2006, one of the most popular residents of Smithville came into existence. Smitty was baked that day and now Smithville holds the Guinness World Record for the largest gingerbread man cookie. Smitty was 20 feet tall and weighed a whopping 1308 pounds 8 ounces. It took over 750 pounds of flour, 49 gallons of molasses and 79 dozen eggs to make him. There is now a representation of him at the end of Main Street by the water tower and the Railroad Museum. Smitty is a very popular photo subject.

    Railroad Park

    by littleladybug333 Written Jan 29, 2005

    Smithville's biggest industry is the railroad. There is a small park at the end of Main Street. There is a gazebo, a small train museum (although I'm not sure how often it is open), a small playground, and 3 or 4 rail cars that you can climb up into.
