The Art, History and Culture of NSB

So what’s with the name New Smyrna Beach? If it’s Greek to you that’s because it is Greek, named after the Greek city of Smyrna, which is today the city of Izmir in Turkey. Settled by Europeans in 1768, a Scottish physician by the name of Dr. Andrew Turnbull, established the colony of New Smyrna in this oh-so lush part of the New World. Since he was married to the daughter of a merchant from Smyrna, he named the settlement after her birthplace. What a lovely tribute!

The history of this beautiful Florida destination is as rich as the dark rum that was once produced here. In addition to sugarcane (used in the making of rum), hemp and indigo were also grown here by Dr. Turnbull and other colonists. Plantation life proved to be a failed endeavor and many of the Mediterranean peoples brought in to work in the fields ended up fleeing to Saint Augustine, Florida.
