Smithfield is the home of the Smithfield Farms, and is a very friendly village with many historic homes that have been well maintained. The town is about 1/2 miles long, and a walking tour is most appropriate. There are several nice restaurants to tempt the visitor's palate, along with a bakery and ice cream shop. There are 8 case and... More

The Visitor Center is on your right when you drive down Main Street. We were given information about where to park and what to visit as well as details of the six restaurants in Smithfield. Two added bonuses: clean rest rooms and a center displaying attractive local arts and crafts.

She was well informed and clearly had personal experience with the attractions in Smithfield. In addition... More

We were visiting Williamsburg and wanted to take the Jamestown Ferry and see something different. We visited the cute little town of Smithfield. We started at the visitor center and met very friendly staff who gave us great recommendations. The art gallery was really nice too. One of the artist in residence was really great at showing her artwork and... More

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. We have stopped in many times when visiting the area. Nice artsy gift shop inside. Have purchased gifts several times for friends and family here. Any info you need when in the area, make this a stop. Within walking distance of historic Smithfield.

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.
