One of the gentleman who runs the Visitor Center was so kind and shared a lot of the history of Smithfield with my husband and me. We look forward to visiting again this year.

Lots of local flavor, from the largest Smithfield ham to the country store. Located right in the town and very accessible. Worth a stop of an hour or so to suck up the local feeling

We were so glad that we decided to visit Smithfield and the Historic St,. Luke's Church. The people are very friendly, the homes are historic - just a nice place to be. We did experience a 'fragrance' in the air but I would not hesitate to visit Smithfield again.

Nice little visitor center on Main Street in Smithfield. The people were very friendly and helpful. They called St. Luke's church and set-up a tour, being the off season for the church we would have missed out on this if not for their help.

The Smithfield visitors center should be your 1st stop when arriving in town.The Smithfield walking map is the most important brochure to get since it covers many of the important locations in this small easily navigable town.We were in town for the historic homes tours and the woman at the center was very informative and answered all of our questions...

Very nice visitor center and art gallery combined. The lady who helped us knew everything about Smithfield and gave us the appropriate maps and brochures to help us during our visit. The Smithfield Walking Tour map was especially helpful as you have an overview of everything including historic houses, shops, and dining. We told her we wanted to see St.... More
