Inside an Icon

Record #:
The R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company was a prominent economic component and employer in Winston Salem during the twentieth century. The company headquarters building—built in the late 1920s—was iconic, and the inspiration for the Empire State Building. Following the decline of the tobacco industry, the building wasn’t used, but today, the inside has been refurbished as a hotel.
