Smithfield is a plantation house in Blacksburg, Virginia, built from 1772 to 1774 by Col. William Preston to be his residence and the headquarters of his farm. It was the birthplace of two Virginia Governors: James Patton Preston and John B. Floyd.

William Preston’s Smithfield tells the story of American history in a way that no other site can. It sits at the intersection of the Colonial America, westward expansion, African slavery, and conflicts between indigenous peoples and European settlers.

Smithfield connects George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis & Clark, the American Revolution, secessions, emancipation and the Civil War. It is the birthplace of universities, including Virginia Tech. It represents the hope, promise and tragedy of American democracy and provides a unique opportunity to gain perspective from the past, insight for the present, and inspiration for the future.
