Memories of Smithville-1787 to 1950

The history book that helps inform this podcast was completed and first published in 2009. In 2014 the book had its third printing. It was written by myself and published by Doug Nicol. Copies can be still be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce location in the Train Station, at Carruthers' Printing on College Street and by contacting me, Ivan Carruthers, directly.

Do you have a question for topics for future episodes?

Some of the topics for the first few episodes came from conversations I had with friends and acquaintances who I bumped into and who asked me if I remembered something about a certain part of Smithville or if I remembered a particular person. If you have a question about Smithville or some of the families from the area please send me an email. If I know something about the topic or can find out for you, I may include it in a future podcast!

    History of the Buildings on Smithville’s Downtown Mural

    Welcome back to the Print Shop and another episode of Dad's Hometown Memories. In this, the 21st episode, Dad takes the time to outline the history of all of the buildings in the beautiful mural that was installed on the wall of the Murgatroyd building at the stoplight in town. Some of the information comes from the history books published about Smithville and other stories come from Dad's own memory! We've included a picture of the mural on the Facebook posting for this episode so that you can look at the picture and follow along as Dad narrates the history of each building. We hope you enjoy and if you do, please share this episode with others.
