We and our 3 children (ages 13, 8, and 7 visited while vacationing in the area. Could not have been more pleased with the visit. The staff is extremely friendly. The head interpreter, April Danner, is an amazing tour guide! She has grown up in the Blacksburg area, and as an Historian by education, she pours her heart and soul into the Smithfield Plantation. She seems to be willing to spend as much time as required to answer any and all questions. She is great with the kids; quizzing them on various objects throughout the house and answering all their questions. We visited on a Friday and were the only people in her group. Not sure what the weekend tours would be like. Try to visit during the weekdays for an incredible one-on-one experience!
