CANDLELIGHT TOURS:


Three Historic Homes featured (details below)
Saturday ONLY: 6 pm  - 9 pm 

​Parking available near the homes.


 House 1


The Benjamin Chapman House (the Old Library)


130 S. Church Street (1892)
This home was built in the typical Victorian style, but you couldn't tell that now. It was remodeled in the 1930s to its present hipped-roof Georgian style. Once used as the town's bakery, it was later served as our library.

 

House 2


The Berryman Mansion


345 S. Church Street (1900)
This impressive Victorian  features a ballroom on the third floor, a widow's walk at its peak, and an ornate gazebo overlooking the Pagan River.
It was built as a wedding gift for P. D. Gwaltney, Jr.'s daughter, and is sometimes referred to as the "Wedding Cake House." 

 

House 3



The Henning Nelms House




205 S. Church Street (1882)
Built for the then-mayor of Smithfield and his wife during something of a building spree on South Church Street,
this home has a wonderful view of the Pagan River.
