Smiley, Texas Main Photo

Smiley, Texas is located in Southwestern Gonzales County in South Central Texas.  This small rural community was established in the early 1870s, when trader and sheepherder John Smiley settled by a long narrow lake that became known as Smiley's, Smileys, or Smiley Lake. The lake became an important watering point for cattle herds on the way to market, and several businesses, including a cotton gin and a sawmill, were started in the community by the early 1880s.
