Reynolds Homestead 50+ Celebration - June 2022

 In 1970, Nancy Susan Reynolds presided over the dedication of the Reynolds Homestead. Though we were unable to gather in 2020, we celebrated the Reynolds Homestead 50+ Anniversary in a series of events the weekend of June 18-19, 2022. The free celebration included speakers, local artisans, and music, plus artist P. Buckley Moss was on hand to personally sign her Reynolds Homestead prints. After the anniversary celebration, members of the community and the university officially broke ground on a kitchen expansion at the Community Engagement Center.
