2022 Conference- Friday Graylyn Manor Tour

October 28, 2022


Guests experiencing a Butler-led Tour of Graylyn will learn about the unusual history of this 1932 American Country House estate, originally the grand residence of the Bowman Gray family before becoming in turn a psychiatric hospital, university housing, and after a destructive fire, a luxury hotel and conference center. The Manor features original furnishings and decor collected by Nathalie and Bowman Gray on trips to different countries around the world for their Winston-Salem home. Your Butler will share highlights and anecdotes of Graylyn’s glamorous past and present. The tour lasts approximately ninety minutes and although seating will be available at times, participants should expect periods of walking stairs and longer periods of standing.

This tour is limited to 15 people maximum.
