DAY TRIP GALS: Wednesday, March 11 at 10:00 AM
Historic Union Station Tour, 300 S. Martin Luther King Dr., W-S 27101
See a part of Winston-Salem’s history restored to its former glory. Union Station, built in 1926 and on the National Register of Historic Places, was restored in 2018-19. Today, the structure houses the city’s transportation traffic signal-control operations. Originally, Union Station was built to form a terminal for three railroads, the Southern, the Norfolk and Western, and the Winston-Salem Southbound, to serve the growing city of Winston-Salem. It was designed by Fellheimer and Wagner, a prominent New York Architectural firm that designed train stations throughout the United States during that period. The building combines Beaux Arts Style with Neoclassical details. We will learn about its railroad history and various uses later as well as examining architectural details.

Reynolda House Museum of Art and Gardens, 2250 Reynolda Rd., W-S 27106
Join the Day Trip Gals for the Tiffany Glass Exhibit at the Reynolda House and Museum of American Art andReynolda’s Green House and Gardens. COST: $18 + tax for non-members, $0 for Reynolda House members and military. We will meet at the house museum and head directly to the premier Tiffany exhibit. Day Trip Gals previously toured the home in 2019. This trip we will focus on the Tiffany exhibit only and Reynolda Gardens. People may go back on their own after the N&N tour if they wish. There are several new smaller exhibits throughout the house that you may not have seen. Reynolda House and Gardens is an iconic fixture in Winston-Salem. If you are new to the city, this is a bucket list must see.
Reynolda’s Spring 2020 exhibition Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light, is organized by the Neustadt Collec-tion of Tiffany Glass in Queens, NY. The first exhibition of its kind at Reynolda, it includes five windows, twenty-two lamps, and several displays showing how Tiffany glass was manufactured, how his lamps were assembled, and how collectors today can distinguish between authentic lamps and forgeries. The exhibition features some of the most celebrated of Tiffany’s works.
To complement the exhibition, Reynolda has created a special installation of Katharine Smith Reynolds’s collection of Tiffany blown-glass vases. The floral themes of Tiffany’s iconic works will carry over to Reynolda Gardens where visitors will be invited to enjoy spring blooms in the four-acre formal garden as well as the greater grounds of the Reynolda estate. The Day Trip Gals will finish our tour in the gardens and green house gift store prior to lunch.
