Smithfield Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land used mainly for farming, orcharding and timber-getting. Population was minimal until the 1840s, when land was subdivided and a village was established. Expansion continued during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Significant development did not occur until the post-war years, with rapid growth through to the 1970s. The population declined marginally between 1991 and 2006, and then increased slightly between 2006 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly medium density housing.
Major features of the area include Fairfield City Museum & Gallery, Justin Centre Shopping Centre, Smithfield Square Shopping Centre, Smithfield RSL Club, Smithfield Cemetery, Smithfield Industrial Area, Brenan Park, Janice Crosio Athletics Oval, Prospect View Park, Rosford Street Reserve, Shamrock Park, Smithfield Park and several schools.
