“Interesting Little Museum”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

If you're interested in going off the beaten trail and enjoying a relaxing day, Smithfield fits the bill. The museuem highlights the history of the area and of the famous ham production that made the town what it is today. There is no admission cost, so it's well worth a half hour of your time to brouse the exhibits there.
