Mission Statement

The Smithfield-Preston Foundation seeks to inspire a new generation through the stories and values of all those who lived at Smithfield. These values are courage, leadership, education, and justice. Its purpose is to help people gain perspective from the past, insight for the present, and inspiration for the future.

Description

Smithfield is located in what is now Blacksburg, Virginia. It was built between 1772
- 1774 and is the ancestral home of the Preston family. Today, as a museum, it aspires to
provide perspective from the past, insight for the present, and inspiration for
the future. The stories at William Preston's Smithfield influence people to be
courageous and to seek justice by acting as leaders in their lives and communities. At
William Preston’s Smithfield, we focus on four main values: courage, leadership and
education, and justice.
It is our goal to make Smithfield into a place that is inclusive to all people groups.
Smithfield tells histories that are often inspiring and sometimes really challenging.
Regardless of the topics we cover, Smithfield fosters dialogue that builds empathy and
understanding. Those connected with it aspire to make Smithfield a safe place for
unsafe ideas.
