A visit to charming Smithfield (home of the world famous ham) offers visitors a “step back in time” to a true small town experience.Smithfield, incorporated in 1752, maintains its quaint river town feel and is known worldwide for its famous ham curing process. This gem delivers “hams, history, hospitality & HeART.” Plan your trip around one of the upcoming free events.
Begin your visit in downtown at the Visitor Center - also home to the Arts Center @ 319 - offering tourist information, a gallery/gift shop and the chance to chat with resident artists. Further down Main Street is the Isle of Wight Museum, with its overview of the county’s history and the world's oldest ham.
Finish your day with dinner at Smithfield Station or one of the area’s other fine dining establishments, but be sure to rest up for all the fun in store tomorrow. We recommend staying at Smithfield Station Waterfront Inn, Smithfield Inn Bed & Breakfast, Church Street Inn, or Mansion on Main Bed & Breakfast.
