Christmas with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Smith-Appleby House
Bring your kids and cameras to enjoy photos and fun at a Christmas holiday visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the historic Smith-Appleby House Museum in Smithfield, RI.
While Santa & Mrs. Claus pose for photos with the children and discuss their Christmas wish lists, volunteers in Colonial costumes will demonstrate hearthside cooking and present the history of the 315 year-old family farm home.
The Smith-Appleby House was built, circa 1696, as a one-room stone-ender with a loft by Elisha Smith, a grandson of John Smith The Miller, one of Roger Williams original party of six men who left the Massachusetts Bay Colony to settle in Providence. Later generations of the family expanded the House to 12 rooms.
