Local Government

Within Smith County there are three incorporated communities. As the county seat, Carthage is the center of local government and business activities and is the largest of the incorporated communities. South Carthage, which is located just across the Cumberland River from Carthage, developed primarily because of the railroad. Gordonsville, which encompasses the largest land area of the incorporated communities, is bisected by Interstate 40.
