We're excited to welcome you this September to an exclusive and dynamic look at the American farm. Tickets go on sale September 1!

Grant Wood and the American Farm will trace the evolution of the farm over a period of a hundred years, from 1850 to 1950.

Reynolda at 100: Reynolda Gardens

Drawn largely from the historic photographs and manuscript collections from the Reynolda House Archives, many on display for the first time, this exhibition will show the role the gardens played in Katharine Reynolds's ambitious vision for a New South and how Reynolda Gardens, built to complement and support a working estate, continues its historic mission of education and public access. This exhibition is extended until September 18!
