Discover North Smithfield
North Smithfield is a town located in Providence County, Rhode Island. The town was originally settled in the early 1600s by English settlers, and was officially incorporated as a town in 1871.
The town’s early economy was centered around agriculture, with many residents working as farmers or in related industries such as milling and blacksmithing. The town’s location along the Blackstone River also made it an important hub for transportation and trade.
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, North Smithfield saw significant growth and development. The town was home to several large mills and factories, including the Slatersville Mill, which was the largest mill in the world at the time of its construction in 1803. These industries provided employment for many residents and helped to fuel the town’s economic growth.
Despite the decline of the mill industry in the late 20th century, North Smithfield has remained a thriving community. Today, the town is known for its small-town charm, beautiful natural surroundings, and strong sense of community. It is a popular place to live and work, with a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial areas.
Throughout its history, North Smithfield has played an important role in the development and growth of Rhode Island. Its rich history and cultural significance make it an interesting and unique place to visit and explore.
