Reynolds Homestead

Celebrating 50+ years of service

Join us June 17-19 for our anniversary celebration!

The Reynolds Homestead is closed for tours as we complete repairs to the historic home and kitchen in preparation for our 50+ anniversary celebration.  

Learning and discovery

The Reynolds Homestead, once known as the Rock Spring Plantation, is the birthplace of tobacco magnate R.J. Reynolds and his brother A.D. Reynolds, whose son founded Reynolds Metals. Today the historic Patrick County, Virginia, property acts as part museum, part community gathering place, and part educational and cultural center dedicated to lifelong learning and community engagement. 

Community Engagement Center

The Community Engagement Center offers a variety of progams and events and is available for weddings and other rentals. Find out more about Renting the CEC.

P. Buckley Moss prints

P. Buckley Moss created two works of art for the 50th anniversary, with hand-signed prints available for purchase. A portion of all sales will support art programs at the homestead. 

Creative Arts Center

The Creative Arts Center, located in Stuart, offers pottery, weaving, painting, and other art classes.

Experiential Education
