The Smithfield Inn

The Smithfield Inn, built in 1752, is older than The Alamo or even Independence Hall in Philadelphia. George Washington slept here. (No really, he did.) During this time, Smithfield's bustling wharf harbor had become a popular destination for ships bringing goods from the old world to the new. The reason? They could return loaded down with two new world delicacies— peanuts and the hams that have made Smithfield world famous. To serve these travelers and others coming over the main stagecoach route from Norfolk to Richmond and eventually steamboat and motorcar, the original residence was converted to an Inn and Tavern in 1759. Thus, began over 250 years of Southern hospitality and charm that still defines the “Old Inn on Main Street”.
