The Smith-Appleby House was originally constructed circa 1696 as a one-room stone-ender with a loft above. It was built by Elisha Smith, grandson of John Smith (The Miller) — one of Roger Williams’ original party of six men who left the Massachusetts Bay Colony and founded Providence. Over the years, later generations of the family expanded the House, which today totals 12 rooms.
The Smith-Appleby House Museum is on the National Register of Historic Places and is headquarters to The Historical Society of Smithfield. It’s located at 220 Stillwater Rd. in Smithfield, RI, just off I-295 (Exit 8-B).
