Smithfield is known throughout Rhode Island as “Apple Country”. While many of the orchards have become upscale housing, there is still an incredible amount of forested land and the town offers a combination of rural and suburban lifestyles. Some of the nation’s largest, leading companies have made a home in the Smithfield area, providing a thriving economic streak to this proud northern town.
Bryant University and several major office parks have brought a steady influx of young people to Smithfield and new condominiums and apartments are now part of the real estate mix. Other real estate ranges from fixer-uppers to farms, as well as large new homes. Smithfield’s location allows you to be less than an hour from both Boston and Rhode Island’s famous beaches.
Smithfield is made up of 7 villages: Esmond, Georgiaville, Greenville, Mountaindale, Spragueville, Stillwater and West Greenville.
