A century ago, Reynolda operated a self-contained community of farms, villages, schools, and pleasure grounds. At its center, Reynolda House was home to two generations of the Reynolds family before opening as a museum of American art in 1967. The art collection is an uncompromisingly selective one, a chronology of American art, with each artist represented by one work of major significance. The Reynolda experience also features the Mary and Charlie Babcock Wing, which hosts temporary exhibitions; Reynolda Gardens, composed of formal gardens and walking trails through the expansive estate; and Reynolda Village, more than 25 of the estate’s original buildings repurposed as shops and restaurants.
