Smithfield has many of the charms associated with Hampton Roads communities, including 18th & 19th Century architecture, a revitalized historic downtown, and all the character of a former colonial seaport. According to the Virginia Landmarks Register, Smithfield is "perhaps the best preserved of Virginia's Colonial seaports."
The Town of Smithfield had an aging website that was restricting its utilization of the Internet as a tool to reach out to its citizens. Insercorp developed a new website that is more user-friendly and reflects the culture of one of Virginia's most well-preserved historical towns. The website features an interactive map that displays locations of Government buildings and agencies across the town. It also includes a Flash slideshow and multiple forms that can be submitted online to save time and money by not having to print and mail or hand deliver certain forms.
