Sophia Smith Homestead Located at 22 Main Street in Hatfield, Mass., the homestead was the birthplace and home of Sophia Smith until a few years before her death. It was built ca. 1790. The property was purchasd in 1915 by the Alumnae Association of Smith College and restored and furnished by the class of 1896 through loans, purchases and gifts, with much of the original furniture. It served for a time as a wayside inn and tea shop before becoming a private residence. In 1946, the Alumnae Association sold the homestead to the College.
