New* sign on Reynolda just outside Reynolda Village

The Reynolda Historic District contains Reynolda House and Gardens, Reynolda Presbyterian Church, and Reynolda Village. Reynolda was the estate of R. J. Reynolds designed by Charles Barton Keen, and is an example reflecting the American Country House movement. Reynolda Village, the farm complex, was built with the intention of making Reynolda a self-sufficient community.

That the Historic District specifically contains the church makes the situation at Reynolda Presbyterian even more distressing.

*at least new to me. It could have been here for eons for all I know, but I only just noticed it today.
