Tyler, Texas, is the county seat of Smith County. Named in honor of President John Tyler, it is also known as the Rose Capital of the World, due to the huge number of rose bushes and the country’s largest rose garden. During the Civil War, Tyler was home to Camp Ford, the largest Confederate-run prison west of the Mississippi. The site of that prison is now Camp Ford Historic Park.
