Historic Smithfield presents Opening Day 2023 on Saturday, April 1, 2023.

Join us to welcome the first day of our 2023 Visit Season! Tour the Manor House, site and outbuildings, engage with our knowledgeable interpreters. Onsite you can watch blacksmithing demos and living history presentations.

Join us for a presentation at 11:00 AM from author Heather Cole and her book "At Home with the Virginia Presidents". The book is an engaging armchair travel talk about the eight Virginia-born presidents and the sites that shaped their lives. We will travel the state from Staunton to Charles City and Wytheville to Winchester to (virtually) visit the homes and historic sites of the Virginia presidents. Attendees will learn a bit about the presidents’ lives, take a peek inside their homes and get ideas for their next history road trip.

Heather Cole's book will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.

Historic Smithfield is located at 1000 Smithfield Plantation Road in Blacksburg, VA.
