WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Part of the Graylyn Intrnational Conference Center is back open after its first renovation in decades.
The mews at the historic manor home on Reynolda Road hadn’t been renovated since the mid 1980s. The mews originally housed horses and chickens but were later converted to meeting space and hotel rooms.
“All of the same experiences at the manor house you exprienece down here with the new private dining room,” said Tina Fullard with the Graylyn Estate. “I think that’s the biggest change: You have all the services, amenities and rooms and space that you do at the manor house.”
The estate was built in the 1920s and was the former home of Reynolds Tobacco executive Bowman Gray. It was turned into a conference center in 1984.
