This popular destination in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was created between 1906 and 1924 through the collaboration of three talented people: visionary Katharine Reynolds, architect Charles Barton Keen, and landscape architect Thomas W. Sears. With the financial backing of her husband, founder of the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Katharine Reynolds transformed a patchwork of worn-out farmland into a landscape of great natural beauty that includes a formal garden, 16-acre lake, recreational facilities, and some of the finest cropland. The sparkling white cluster of village buildings and their occupants are also integral to this story.
