Chimneyville Smokehouse opened for business 1989. The original owner, Mr. Jimmy Morton, started in a trailer with a big smoker out by High Street built to resemble a steam engine. The original smoker and trailer were replaced by a custom-designed building to look like a train depot. The building they now occupy, just across the street from the State Fairgrounds, actually sits over the old railroad bed that was built in early years of the city to run directly behind the Old Capitol building.
