  • Smithville Lake holds rededication ceremony for Jerry L. Litton Visitor Center

    On October 16, 2023, Smithville Lake, along with the Litton Foundation, held a rededication ceremony for the visitor center named after the late Jerry L. Litton, congressman from Chillicothe, Missouri. Congress authorized the Smithville Lake visitor center to incorporate the Jerry L. Litton Museum following Litton’s death in 1976. Prior to the rededication ceremony, the visitor center housed the Jerry L. Litton Museum, was home to several U.S. Army Corps of Engineers informational exhibits and served as USACE administrative offices. In 2022, USACE notified the Litton Foundation of its intent to remodel the building.
