The Smithfield Review

​The Smithfield Review is an academic publication that focuses on Historic Smithfield, the Preston family, and the history of the area west of the Blue Ridge Mountains – the often neglected history of Southwest Virginia. 

Articles include studies of important personages and events, reports of archeological discoveries, as well as analyses of the social, political, economic, and architectural history of the region.  No other annual journal documents the important history of the region in such a thorough manner.

The Smithfield Review is an annual publication that may be purchased from the Smithfield Museum Store or by downloading and mailing the attached form to Smithfield.  You may wish to consult this list of annotations for each of the Review’s articles, by volume. 

In addition to these sources, the Smithfield Review may be found at the following off-site locations: Tech Bookstore on Main St. (Blacksburg), Alexander Black House & Cultural Center (Blacksburg), Montgomery Museum and Lewis Miller Art Gallery (Christiansburg), Salem Museum (Salem), Andrew Johnston House Museum (Pearisburg), Wilderness Road Museum (Newbern), and the Museum of the Middle Appalachians (Saltville).
