Reynolds Homestead

One of my favorite places to visit near our home in SW Virginia is Reynolds Homestead. Not only is there interesting history related to it, but there are numerous photographic opportunities to explore. Below are a few of my recent photos from there, but before you look, here’s a brief summary of what the place is.

“The Reynolds Homestead is an outreach facility of Virginia Tech located in Critz. It features the fully-restored Rock Spring Plantation House, 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 the original brick kitchen, a brick milk house, a log icehouse and a log granary. The family cemetery is located near the house and across a field is the slave cemetery. The house is a registered state and national landmark.”
