Smithville, ON, History and Attractions
Smithville was first settled by Richard Griffin and his family, United Empire Loyalists who came from Nine Partners, New York in 1787. The names of his sons were Abraham, Edward, Nathaniel, Isaiah, Smith, Jonathan, and Richard Jr. They settled on Lots 8, 9, 10, Concession IX, on the Twenty Mile Creek in Grimsby (later South Grimsby) Township. Solomon Hill, who married Bethia, daughter of Richard Griffin, settled on Lot 6, Charles Meridith on Lot 7; Thomas Harris on Lot 11, and Thomas North on Lot 12. These lots, all in the 9th Concession became the settlement first known as Griffintown, but later renamed after Mrs. Griffin, whose maiden name was Mary Smith.
Edward "Ned" Griffin is sometimes claimed to be the real founder of the village. He was the one who felled the first tree, chose the village site, cleared the first acre of land, built the first house, and lived his entire life in the village.
By 1849, Smithville had reached a population of about 150, and had been granted a post office with twice-weekly delivery. The settlement had a grist mill, a saw mill, a carding machine and cloth factory, four stores, one machine shop, one tannery, two blacksmiths, two tailors and two shoemakers.
Smithville, along with the remainder of South Grimsby Township was amalgamated into the newly formed Township of West Lincoln on January 1, 1970.
The West Niagara Agricultural Society holds an agricultural fair before Labour Day every year at the West Niagara Fairgrounds at the corner of Grimsby Road and Mud Street, approximately five kilometres from town. The Smithville Fair was formerly held at the West Lincoln Mixed Use Recreation Site, formerly the Smithville Fairgrounds. The merger of Smithville Agricultural Society and with the Lincoln Agricultural Society in 2012 prompted the move to the new, larger grounds in 2015. There are lots of agricultural competitions, demolition derbies and entertainment for all ages.
