Reynolda Centennial: Celebrating 100 Years
In December 1917, tobacco tycoon R.J. Reynolds, his wife Katharine and their four children moved from the city life of downtown Winston-Salem to their country estate which they lovingly named, Reynolda. A magnificent result of Katharine's vision and progressive thinking, Reynolda Estate was a self-sufficient community comprised of the Reynolds' country bungalow, two schools, a post office, two churches, a working farm, a manmade lake, and formal gardens along with many other gems. In 1967, their home became Reynolda House Museum of American Art, presenting an exceptional collection of art by America’s most noted artists including Albert Bierstadt, William Merritt Chase, Nam June Paik, Romare Bearden and Grant Wood. The complete Reynolda experience also includes Reynolda Gardens, composed of formal gardens, walking trails and wetlands, and Reynolda Village -- an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants in many of the estate’s original buildings.
Recognized as "America's Grande Dame of the South," join Reynolda Estate for a journey through the past 100 years with a year-long Centennial celebration that includes two landmark art exhibitions in fall 2017 and spring 2018, a historic Christmas celebration and special commemorative events dotted throughout.
