Moving The Smithfield Railroad Station – 1975

Moving The Smithfield Railroad Station – February 2, 1975

     The Smithfield Station was located on Brayton Avenue just in the from the intersection of Farnum Pike, (Rt. 104).  It was one of four stations in Smithfield that were built in the 1870s as part of the Providence & Springfield Railroad.   Passenger service to Smithfield ended in 1931, and the station fell into disrepair.  In February 2, 1975, members of the Historical Society of Smithfield brought the old station to the Smith-Appleby House.  There it sat for almost five years before being taken to the Davies Technical School in Lincoln where it underwent restoration.  It was then brought back to the Smith-Appleby House and placed on a granite foundation where it sits today on permanent display.
