Smiths Station Alabama

Smiths Station, one of the most thriving and fastest growing communities in Lee County, was settled in 1826. In 1845 the Central of Georgia Railroad was built through the community from Columbus, Georgia to Opelika, Alabama. The depot was named for Mr. Broadus Smith, a prominent early settler who lived near by.
