Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Winston-Salem is LOADED with fascinating historical landmarks. Probably the most relevant example is Reynolda Village, which includes other interesting attractions: the Reynolda Gardens and the Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
The museum has been built in the former home of R.J. Reynolds, the well-known tobacco mogul. The edifice, which dates all the way back to the early twentieth century, is the home of some of the best public collections of American art that you could possibly find in the South.
We’re talking about the Museum of Early Southern Ornamental Arts (MESDA), which is devoted to some of the earliest South’s original decorative artworks.
