…quote taken from the Reynolda House Museum of American Art website.  “The history of Reynolda is steeped in visionary decision making and progressive thinking. Richard Joshua Reynolds, founder of the tobacco company that bears his name, was a key player in the industrialization of the New South. He established his own tobacco factory in Winston, North Carolina in 1875, eventually becoming enormously successful from the sale of Prince Albert tobacco and Camel cigarettes. He married Katharine Smith in 1905, and they had four children, Dick, Mary, Nancy, and Smith.

Founded in the 1960s with one of the earliest collections dedicated solely to American art, Reynolda House Museum of American Art offers the opportunity to view artistic masterpieces in a warm and welcoming environment. Completed in 1917, Reynolda House served as the primary residence of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds until 1922. Today, Reynolda displays many of the furnishings selected by Katharine to decorate her home in the height of fashion for early twentieth-century America. Finely situated among the furnishings are works of art by notable artists spanning three centuries, including Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Church, Jacob Lawrence, and Grant Wood.”
