Thank you for visiting the Town of North Smithfield website,

“Rich in History and Community Spirit”.


Vibrant and interesting people live in the 24.7 square miles comprising North Smithfield, nestled in the Blackstone Valley in northern Rhode Island. Our rural character is one facet of our lives that we treasure - our residents are friendly and welcoming - and our community involvement is second to none.


We invite you to experience the village of Slatersville, “America's first planned industrial mill village”.  Located at the heart of the community - a gathering place, boasting an idyllic town common and white steeple church.


Please visit our News & Events tab to see the latest happenings in our community and take a moment to review our 2014 Annual Report to see what a difference a year makes!


Take a walking tour; see the village as it was over 200 years ago.  You are always welcome!

We apologize for the inconvenience while our DPW Department continues to clean up from the Blizzard!
