    Views of the Smith-Appleby House and grounds. 

     Thank you for visiting the Smith-Appleby House Museum – Historical Society of Smithfield website. 


Happy St. Patrick’s Day, March 17

    We are a volunteer organization dedicated to maintaining the museum and its grounds, as well as collecting and preserving documents, photographs, and other items pertaining to local history for education and research purposes.  Portions of our archival materials can be found under the “Smithfield History” menu on this website.  This is an ongoing process, and new material is frequently added.      

     The Smith-Appleby House dates to circa 1696.  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 of Smithfield is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization.

       The Smith-Appleby House is open for tours from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every 3rd Sunday of the month, from April to December, and during certain scheduled events. Tours may also be arranged upon request.
