Smithfield Union Bank Robbery – 1838

     The Smithfield Union Bank was established in February of 1805, in the village of Slatersville, which prior to 1871 was part of the town of Smithfield. 

     It was the first bank to be established in Smithfield, and, as these articles from the Woonsocket Weekly Patriot indicate, may have been the first bank in Smithfield to be robbed.
