Highly recommend visiting the Reynolds estate during the spring when everything is flourishing. American history at it's finest. Beautiful grounds for a nice walk or bike ride. Bring the dog for a brisk walk before or after the tour.

We love our #dogsofreynolda! Thanks for visiting and for the recommendation. The first signs of spring are the daffodils popping up along the main driveway. We hope you will return soon!

We had a great time visiting the house on a wet rainy day. This house was way ahead of its time. A lovely place to visit. We definitely will return for a picnic in warmer months.

Reynolds House Museum of American Art is a must see when you visit Winston Salem. The former estate of cigarette producer RJ Reynlods is a national treasure.

The city of Winston was a young 'sleepy' town near Salem in the mid-19th century, then RJ Reynolds built his first tobacco factory there in 1875, expanded, and introduced the Camel cigarette - the two communities united in 1913 to become the city of Winston-Salem....More

I was disappointed with the Christmas decorations but the house is so awesome, I guess it doesn't need much embellishment. Be sure to get the talking narrative. The recorder is FREE but remember to read the panels, too, as the information is different than what...More

Thanks for your review! The decorations here at Reynolda are more modest by today’s standards, but are reflective of when the Reynolds family moved here in December 1917. Katharine Reynolds used greenery, magnolia leaves, nandina berries and other natural elements from outside for decoration. We...More

This was a beautiful place to visit. There was a photographic exhibit going on that was the reason we visited, but the house and gardens are worth the trip.
