“a look back in time”
Smithfield is a plantation outside Blacksburg, Virginia built from 1772 to 1774 as a home by Col. William Preston. It was the birthplace of two Virginia Governors: James Patton Preston and John B. Floyd. The house remained a family home until 1959 when the home was donated to the APVA. History was made at Smithfield, and we exist today to share that history with you. Today, the historic site is not only a tour destination, but also a rich resource for scholars, family members, and history enthusiasts of all sorts.
