The crown jewel of the Burlington County Parks System, Smithville Park was once a thriving company town founded in the 1800s by Hezekiah B. Smith, an inventor, entrepreneur and politician who lived in the stately mansion that remains on the property. The annex gallery is located upstairs inside the mansion and is open during exhibits weekly, Thursday - Sunday.
