North Smithfield was rural-agrarian in its beginnings. Most of the early settlers lived on farms and their lives were centered around the farm. With the advent of organized industry, North Smithfield had its early industrial growth centered around its water power. Villages developed around the mills, each growing and developing its own unique characteristics.

North Smithfield has changed much from its former agrarian beginnings. The farmer and millwright have been replaced with many diverse occupations which are carried on the outside of North Smithfield's boundaries. The forest and farmland has been and is presently being redesigned into residential, industrial, commercial and recreational use. The town has assumed a suburban character but has not lost its early charm, which is so characteristic of North Smithfield.

North Smithfield is located in Providence County. Accommodations in North Smithfield include Hill Top Inn.
