WINSTON-SALEM — This holiday season, step back in time with a visit to the Reynolda historic district. The gardens, village, and house that comprise Reynolda, the country estate of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds, will be decorated for the season and offers a variety of experiences for the whole family. 

Reynolda House, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, presents a window into a grand moment of the city’s history, but never more so than during the holidays. Furnishings in the house are nearly 85 percent original, and together with a recreation of holiday decorations — multiple wreaths and ornamented Christmas trees, swags of garlands, and hand-stamped Christmas cards, all researched from the family archives — visitors will experience the Reynoldses’ own 1917 holiday. 

Holiday experiences at Reynolda include an estate-wide holiday stroll, historic tours, shopping days, performances, caroling, a holiday concert, wreath-decorating classes, overnight packages with Graylyn, interactive family activities and more. Tickets and information for all events available at
