A group of residents visited the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Reynolda House Museum and decided to also tour the house and gardens. It was a wonderful experience that enlightened me to how much the Reynolds family contributed to the development of Winston-Salem and were influential in providing opportunities for others.

Reynolda House is the home built by RJ Reynolds and wife, Katherine in the 1900s. Beautiful architecture and many events throughout the year where you can go and walk around in this beautiful home and the surrounding grounds.

Art objects are featured throughout the house as the family lived with them. Of particular interest was the Aeolian Organ with pipes on the second floor behind tapestries. A beautiful setting for a family home.

Step back in time to the turn-of-the-century industrial age by visiting R. J. Reynolds' summer bungalow. Learn how closely this home has been tied to the local community throughout its existence.

This house is beautiful for its art and for the legacy of the house itself, which reflects an elaborate architectural tradition of the early twentieth century. I really enjoyed walking around the mansion. It is a very peaceful place and a good place to think. In our hurried lifestyle, this is an excellent place just to take a break for... More
