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. Over the years, later generations of the family expanded the single room to a 12 room house.

Today, the House is operated as a museum by the Historical Society of Smithfield, RI. The House Museum features a variety of original stencils, designs, furnishings, and exhibits, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The House also hosts a variety of events and activities for the public throughout the year, including Colonial militia demonstrations and military encampments, arts and crafts and baking classes, historically-themed dinners, and Holiday celebrations.

Custom programs and tours are available for schools and classroom field trips, scout troops, historical groups, community associations, clubs, and other organizations.

In addition, the House and grounds are available for wedding receptions, showers, ceremonies, family outings, scouting events and campouts, and photographs.
