Originally totaling 1,067-acres, the property that was Reynolda now includes the Reynolda Campus of Wake Forest University, as well as residential and commercial developments. In addition to Reynolda Gardens, two other organizations are located at the center of the original Estate. The home of Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Reynolds is now Reynolda House Museum of American Art. The farm and commercial buildings of Reynolda Village have been adapted for use as shops, offices, and restaurants. With one addition in the 1930s, most of the roadway pattern remains. Some areas of the landscape are currently under treatment to restore historic viewsheds. A Cultural Landscape Report created by The Jaeger Company describes the process in detail.
