Landscape: Piedmont Leaf Tobacco Company -- Piedmont Leaf Lofts (Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, North Carolina)

Community:
Winston-Salem
State:
North Carolina
Architectural note:
The Smith & Sons building, constructed in 1890, is a 4 1/2-story building with segmental-arched windows and was home to the company's leaf house and eventually their factory. Across the street is the Brown Brothers building. This structure was constructed circa 1895 and is 5 1/2 stories tall with a mansard roof.
Historical note:
The Smith & Sons Leaf House and Brown Brothers Company are virtually all that remain of the tobacco companies that existed in Winston-Salem prior to R.J. Reynolds' consolidation. These buildings have since been converted to loft apartments and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
