May Breakfast Brunch 2012We’re hosting our 42nd Annual May Breakfast on Sunday, May 3, 2015.

At the event, our members of the Historical Society of Smithfield, dressed in Colonial garb, will host our guests at our historic 18th-century home to the annual tradition of the Spring-welcoming May Breakfast.

The menu of home-cooked fare will include coffee or tea and orange juice, homemade berry breads, chilled fruit cup with yogurt, crustless country quiche with sausage, johnnycakes, Muriel Mowry Appleby Gustafson’s Boston baked beans, and a surprise dessert.

After breakfast, you’re invited to tour the rooms and exhibits of the House, which dates to 1696. It was built by Elisha Smith, the grandson of John Smith “The Miller,” a member of Roger Williams’ original party of six men who left the Massachusetts Bay Colony to settle in Providence. Expanded from its original construction as a one-room stone-ender cottage, the delicately restored 12-room historic farmhouse features beautiful cabinet work, varied architectural designs, original stencils, and furnished rooms showcasing an intriguing collection of antiques.

Seating is at 11 a.m. Reservations are required; call 401-231-7363. Admission is $25 per person, which includes a self-guided tour.
