Festively decorated from floorboards to rafters to celebrate the Christmas holiday, the Smith-Appleby House Museum in Smithfield, RI, is hosting its “Decorated for Christmas” Open House on Saturday, December 31, 2016, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Visitors will delight in the beautiful Holiday trimmings as volunteers from the Historical Society of Smithfield in Colonial-era dress host tours of the historic 320-year-old house.

The Smith-Appleby House dates to 1696 and 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 start the colony of Providence, Rhode Island, in 1636.

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 Teddy Bear Christmas treeantiques.

There is a $5 donation for adults. Children are free. No reservations are needed. There will be refreshments. 

In case of inclement weather, check our website at www.smithapplebyhouse.org/calendar or call 401-231-7363 for cancellation information.

Visit the Smith-Appleby House at 220 Stillwater Road in Smithfield, RI, just off I-295.
