The great houses that line Stratford Road, Reynolda Park, and other suburban neighborhoods have presented a picture-book view of Winston-Salem since the 1920s. Designed by notable architects, they represent an era of success unmatched in the history of a southern city, reflecting the time when Winston-Salem was known as the “Town of a Hundred Millionaires.” Built by families whose success in tobacco and textiles made it all possible, many of these houses have been preserved by a new generation of families, many of them recent to the city. This talk by Margaret Supplee Smith, the Harold W. Tribble Professor of Art Emerita at Wake Forest University, will explore both the historic period architecture and the kinship patterns that define some of Winston-Salem's most iconic suburban neighborhoods.
