Education is the cornerstone of Historic Smithfield’s mission. It is evident in programming, camps, classes, lectures and the annual Smithfield Review. Whether a group of young summer campers building a small log cabin complete with mud chinking or a person with an academic bent using the Smithfield Review for research, Smithfield is teaching the story of Preston family life on the Virginia frontier. Education is pervasive at Historic Smithfield in ways informal and formal, large and small.
