This addition to a one-room Christian Home School was used until 1947.
This building was moved to its present location on Main Street in Smithfield, Virginia in 2005, and renovated with funds from the Town of Smithfield, Isle of Wight County, corporate partnerships, and the community.
The Schoolhouse Museum officially opened May 19, 2007. It was the Town of Smithfield’s project to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown.
The Museum is operated by a site coordinator and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
