The Smith-Appleby House Museum began as a one-room stone-ender with a loft above. It was built (circa 1696) by Elisha Smith, the grandson of John “The Miller" Smith, cartographer of the New England coastline and a member of Roger William’s original party of six men who left the Massachusetts Bay Colony to settle in Providence. Today it is one of the few 17th century houses still left standing in Rhode Island and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
