Babcock-Smith House Museum

Since the middle of the eighteenth century the Babcock-Smith House has stood amid an ever-changing area atop Granite Street in Westerly, RI.  The Georgian Mansion (circa 1734) is the former home of the Babcocks and Smiths, and it is elegantly furnished with pieces reflecting the Colonial Babcock years, the Victorian Smith years, and colonial restoration of 1928.  As such, the house clearly reflects the modes of life of the several generations who continuously occupied the house until 1972.  Historians and antique-lovers alike will enjoy all the museum has to offer!
