Santa & Mrs. Claus Meet Kids for Photos and Treats on December 8th, Sunday, at the Smith-Appleby House Museum

Bring the kids and cameras to share Christmas Wish Lists and a photo opportunity with Santa and Mrs. Claus from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013, at the historic Smith-Appleby House Museum in Smithfield, RI.

Santa & Mrs. Claus will pose for photos with the children — and discuss their Christmas wish lists — as volunteers in Colonial-period dress present the history of the 315 year-old family farm home. Holiday snacks and treats will be served.

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 William’s 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. Today, the House and grounds are a living Museum. Volunteers portraying Colonial-era characters conduct tours and demonstrations depicting life during the Revolutionary War. The historic House Museum features original furnishings, designs and exhibits.

There is a $5 donation for adults. Children are free. No reservations are needed. The historic Smith-Appleby House Museum is located at 220 Stillwater Rd. in Smithfield, RI, just off I-295.

“Christmas with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Smith-Appleby House” will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013.  For more information, visit the website at or call (401) 231-7363.

The house is headquarters to, and is maintained by, The Historical Society of Smithfield, RI.
