Reynolda House Museum of American Art

Reynolda House Museum of American Art displays a premier collection of American art ranging from the colonial period to the present.  Built in 1917 by Katharine Smith Reynolds and her husband Richard Joshua Reynolds, founder of the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, the house originally occupied the center of a 1,067-acre estate. It opened to the public as an institution dedicated to the arts and education in 1965, and as an art museum in 1967.

Reynolda was the home of two generations of the Reynolds family.  In 1935, Mary Reynolds Babcock, the elder daughter, acquired the estate.  She and her husband Charlie Babcock used the house as their vacation home until 1948 at which time they moved permanently to Reynolda.  The property remained in the family for nearly fifty years.  The museum has restored interior rooms and furnishings to reflect the periods when the family lived here.

The two speakers were excellent and knowledgeable about Plains Indian culture in the 18th and 19th century, even into contemporary iterations! Great panel discussion
