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
