50th Anniversary

It all began June 17, 1970.....

A host of Reynolds family members, descendants of Hardin and Nancy Reynolds, traveled to Critz, Virginia for the dedication of Reynolds Homestead, formerly known as Rock Spring Plantation. They had been invited by Nancy Susan Reynolds to join her in a family reunion and the dedication of their ancestral home she had lovingly restored, with the assistance of other relatives who contributed furniture and other family heirlooms.

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of Ms. Reynolds' legacy and mission for research, cultural and educational programs to be conducted at this site. Stay tuned for more details. 

Due to the recent stay at home Executive Order issued for Virginia extending through June 10th, and with an abundance of caution for our attendees and community, we have decided to postpone our 50th Anniversary Celebration to June 2021. Mark your calendars now for these events:  

Friday, June 18, 2021 - Bushels and Barrels Farm-to-Table Dinner

Saturday, June 19, 2021 - Bushels and Barrels Local Food Wine and Beer Festival

Sunday, June 20, 2021 - Special Anniversary Celebration and Reynolds Family Reunion
