Historic Smithfield's 250th Anniversary Commemoration

Historic Smithfield


Join us as we commemorate 250 years of Historic Smithfield history through our theme, From Deep Roots, Forging an Inclusive Future, presenting an accurate, inclusive, and healing account of Smithfield and all those connected with it–indigenous peoples, and white and black families who lived on the land. Through tours, programs, and activities, learn more about the legacy of the Preston family, but also those who may have been harmed or neglected in the past and to learn the difficult lessons of history to forge a better future.

Registration is required. Full, Child, and Community levels.
