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!

Attention Residents:

Beginning on May 27 through September 2015, Property Data Collectors, Todd Wheeler and Bob D’Arezzo will be inspecting residential and commercial property that have sold in the past year and properties with active building permits.

Residential inspections will start in the NW corner of town, map 1 and move in a SE direction to map 21.

Their licenses and vehicles are registered with the Police Department and Assessor’s office. Residents are asked to cooperate in helping us to estimate a fair value for their home and others in North Smithfield.  Residents may contact the Tax Assessor with any questions or concerns.

Summer is just around the corner and the courts are open
