The Heritage Center preserves the history and material culture of Johnston County for the educational benefit of its citizens and visitors; and it promotes the understanding of and appreciation for its past through interpretive exhibits, programs, and publications. It has become known as one of the best equipped facilities in the country for scholars, amateur historians, genealogists, and students to research the history and culture of Johnston County and its people.
Located in the renovated former home office of First Citizens Bank in the heart of downtown Smithfield, North Carolina. Today's location has space for exhibits, secure artifact storage, and ongoing expansion of the widely acclaimed Johnston County Room collection of local history and genealogy that was previously housed in the Public Library of Johnston County and Smithfield.
Visitors may enjoy the rotating exhibits and special events held throughout the year. Also, pick up the Historic Walking Tour Brochure to explore the Downtown area and its rich history.
The center is open free of admission 9:00AM-5:00PM Monday-Saturday. The center closes for weekday holidays observed by the County of Johnston; and we're usually closed on Saturdays following holidays that fall on Fridays, including the weekends of Easter and Thanksgiving.
