Rebirth of the Graylyn Estate

Record #:
A former tobacco executive's estate in Winston-Salem was renovated and converted into the Graylyn Conference Center. Once the second largest residence in the state belonging to Bowman Gray Sr., of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., the home was donated to the Bowman Gray School of Medicine, and is now part of Wake Forest University. School officials decided to preserve the home and mix academics with a hotel setting to create a modern conference center for visiting scholars.
