Changes are coming to Reynolda Gardens. A renovation project will begin in November. Here’s a look at what it entails:

Greenhouse restoration + updates

A donation from local residents Malcolm and Patricia Brown will be used to update the 1913 Greenhouse with modern control systems to improve functionality and efficiency. Crews will also restore original features of the building, like curved glass on the building’s two wings. It will reopen as the Brown Family Greenhouse in late spring 2024.

Welcome Center addition

A new Reynolda Welcome Center will open in the building that was originally the Florist Workshop. The 680 sqft space will be renovated and connected to the Greenhouse with a glass doorway and accessible walkway. It will provide information to visitors about the different parts of the historic estate — and sell plants and retail items. The project will be paid for with public and private funding. It is expected to open in summer 2024. The gardens will remain open while it is underway.
