    R. J. Reynolds High School is celebrating its 100th anniversary! Join us for a behind the scenes tour of the historic school and auditorium to learn about its fascinating history and how it developed from a wealthy population to one of the most diverse high schools in the WS/FCS. During the tour, you'll hear about the previous high school that burned down and how students had to move into the new building before it was completed. And, you'll hear about the missing building! The school and auditorium buildings were designed by Charles Barton Keen, the noted Philadelphia architect who designed many significant buildings in Winston-Salem and NC - including Reynolda House.

    What would you do if you inherited a train depot? Join us at the Rural Hall Historic Train Depot and Railroad Museum on Saturday, February 18 at 11:00 a.m. where Donna Jo Abernethy will tell you exactly what she did -- and what she continues to do -- with her very unique inheritance. She will also share the story of how her father, D. J. Redding, saved the Depot from demolition, restored it, and created a museum of railroad-related artifacts. The Depot was recognized as a Forsyth County Historic Property in 1981; and in 1983, it was entered into the National Register of Historic Places. Don't miss your opportunity to hear this preservation success story, take a tour of the incredible building, and step inside the little red caboose. Abernethy may even let you ring a locomotive bell! The cost of the tour is $10.00 for members and $20.00 for non-members. Register today as only 35 spaces are available!
