The Reynolds Homestead is the birthplace and boyhood home of tobacco manufacturer R. J. Reynolds. Built in 1843, the two-story brick home has been restored to its nineteenth century state and includes many of the original family furnishings. The grounds include several outbuildings, a brick 3-floor kitchen, brick milk house, a log icehouse and log granary and two graveyards in the midst of 717 acres of fields and woodlands. As a registered state and national landmark, it is open for tours April through October and other times by appointment.
