Visit Smithfield and help us ring in Independence Day by spending the day at a house that saw the beginning of a new nation!

Enjoy house tours, shop in our Museum Store, observe artillery displays by Giles Artillery and blacksmith demonstrations in our onsite forge. At 6:30pm, gather for an Independence Day Ceremony featuring traditional excerpts from the Declaration of Independence and Frederick Douglass, followed by a rousing cannon fire salute. Cool off with flavored shaved ice from Aloha Eddie, and enjoy a patriotic concert by The Blacksburg Brass Ensemble, immediately following the Independence Day Ceremony.
