Building: Reynolda House (Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, North Carolina)

Provenance note:
Built for Katherine Smith Reynolds and her husband Richard Joshua (R. J.) Reynolds, first owners. Reynolds was a tobacco magnate in the early 1900s who founded the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. Today the building is the Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
Architectural note:
The residence was built in the "informal bungalow" style with Colonial Revival interior details. The interior ironwork was executed by Philadelphian Samuel Yellin. The estate included a church, a power plant, greenhouses, employee cottages, carriage sheds, a blacksmith shop, dairy barns, a post office, and a horticulturist's cottage.
Historical note:
The property was given to Wake Forest University in 1965. Reynolda is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is today the Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
