Preserving our rich heritage
NORTH SMITHFIELD HERITAGE ASSOCIATION
Our organization is a fully volunteer, non-profit charity, founded in 1970, that works to preserve and promote the culture, heritage and history of North Smithfield, Rhode Island.
Our Restoration Projects
Historic Cemetery Restoration
Artifacts and Relics
Volunteers collect, scan, catalogue and preserve artifacts of all kinds related to the town's heritage to include Letters, photos, books, relics and antiques. They update our database as well as post to our website for public viewing.
We urge residents to loan historic items so we can photograph and scan images to add to our database or for display at the School House . We can visit your home to photograph items as well.
Our library contains a complete original set of James Arnold's 19th century "Vital Record of Rhode Island" as well as other reference books.
Heritage Hall (the former Union Grange #13), is now our headquarters and a community center, at 101 Greene Street. We restored much of the building in the past few years. We next plan to repaint the building interior and eventually rebuild the steeple.
We rent the upper and lower halls to the public with round or long tables of 8-10 . The upper hall seats 100 and costs $225 for the day. The lower hall seats 50 - 60 people and costs $125.
