Five Row: The Lost Village of Reynolda
Five Row was a community within a community, where African American farm employees lived with their families, some of whom also worked as domestics in Reynolda House. The village of Five Row was demolished around 1960 when Silas Creek Parkway was built, but several of its former residents recorded their memories for the museum. We will share images, recordings, and a clip from a play about Five Row produced in 2014 by Peppercorn Children's Theatre. Panelists include Phil Archer, Director of Public Programs Reynolda House Museum of American Art, and Eugenia Parent, Independent Historian.
