Make your own sailboat and participate in the "Rain Gutter Regatta" at the Smith-Appleby House Museum in Smithfield, RI, on Sunday, July 12, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Children of all ages are invited to attend our free workshop to build their own sailboat — and then sail it in competition with their friends and family in our friendly boat races.

After the workshop, you're invited to tour the rooms and exhibits of the House, which dates to 1696. It was built by Elisha Smith, the grandson of John Smith “The Miller,” a member of Roger Williams’ original party of six men who left the Massachusetts Bay Colony to settle in Providence. Expanded from its original construction as a one-room stone-ender cottage, the delicately restored 12-room historic farmhouse features beautiful cabinet work, varied architectural designs, original stencils, and furnished rooms showcasing an intriguing collection of antiques.

The workshop is free. For museum tours, the adult admission is $5 and children are free. Both are part of the Rhody Ramble series of family adventures in Rhode Island. 

The Smith-Appleby House is located at 220 Stillwater Road in Smithfield, RI, just off I-295. 

The historic Smith-Appleby House is owned and operated by the Historical Society of Smithfield, RI, as a living museum hosting a variety of educational activities, programs, and events throughout the year. Group tours are available for schools, scouts, and other community organizations. The House and property, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are also available to rent for private events. For more information, visit the website at http://www.smithapplebyhouse.org.

The Smith-Appleby House was built, circa 1696, as a one-room stone-ender with a loft by Elisha Smith, a grandson of John Smith “The Miller" — one of Roger Williams' original party of six men who left the Massachusetts Bay Colony to settle in Providence. Later generations of the family expanded the House to 12 rooms.

Today, the House and grounds are a living Museum. Volunteers portraying Colonial-era characters conduct tours and demonstrations depicting life during the Revolutionary War. The historic House Museum features original furnishings, designs and exhibits — and hosts public events and activities year-round, including Colonial militia demonstrations and military encampments, arts & crafts and baking classes, historically-themed dinners, and Holiday celebrations.

Custom programs and tours are available for schools and classroom field trips, scout troops, historical groups, community associations, clubs, and other organizations. 

In addition, the House and grounds are available for wedding receptions, showers, ceremonies, family outings, scouting events and campouts, and photographs.

Located in the town of Smithfield, RI, in the historic John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, the Smith-Appleby House Museum is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. It is also headquarters to The Historical Society of Smithfield, RI.
