The Smithfield Post Office now is named the Ava Gardner Post Office to honor the local native who was one of the world's best-known actresses


Taking into account her becoming one of the world's best-known actresses, Oscar-nominated actress Ava Gardner has the Smithfield Post Office renamed after her.

Rep. Bob Etheridge, D-N.C., sponsored a bill to rename the post office and it was signed Monday by President Bush.

"Ava Gardner was a small-town girl who became a big-time celebrity," said Etheridge while adding "She represents the can-do attitude and patriotism of the people of Smithfield and Johnston County."
