     The Smith-Appleby House dates to 1702, and is home to the Historical Society of Smithfield.  This delicately restored and furnished farm house features beautiful cabinet work, stenciled walls, and other intriguing architectural details.  A unique feature is the smoke room on the second floor — serviced by the huge fireplace in the keeping room. The house is on the National Register of Historic Places and has received the “Footprints in History” Award from the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council.     

     The Historical Society maintains an extensive archive of historic photos, documents, articles, and other memorabilia which can be viewed under the “Smithfield History” portion of this website.  Our archives are constantly growing, so check back often.
