Rich History, Bright Future
Smithfield was chartered just a few months after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Having a long history has not kept Smithfield from looking to the future. Major growth and development of residential areas, commercial space, and healthcare facilities in recent years have transformed the area into a wonderful place to live, work, shop, and play. Even among this rapid growth, focus on service to its citizens has not shifted, and the county’s 911 agency was the first in North Carolina to obtain the “Tri Accreditation” from the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch in Fire, Police, and EMD Protocols.
Rural Feel, Urban Neighbor
Only 30 miles southeast of downtown Raleigh, Smithfield is far enough away from the urban bustle, yet close enough to provide residents with the access they desire. Smithfield residents are only minutes from other nearby communities, such as Apex, Holly
Springsand Fuquay-Varina. Whether you choose to explore adjacent towns or to stay local, you’ll find you have access to endless dining, shopping, cultural and recreational options. When you add a top-rated school system and a thriving local economy, it’s clear why more residents and businesses are moving, growing, and staying in Smithfield.
