Historic Reynolds Mansion
With romantic architecture
Fewer than ten brick houses still survive in western North Carolina from before the Civil War and The Reynolds Mansion is one of them.
“Colonel” Daniel Reynolds built his imposing “double pile” brick home on a knoll of Reynolds Mountain in 1847. A conservative but substantial house plan built only by the most prosperous of western North Carolina’s citizens before the Civil War. He and his wife, Susan Adelia Baird had 10 children. They lived on 1500 acres in Asheville given to them by Susan’s father, Israel Baird.
When Daniel Reynolds passed away in 1878 his son, William Taswell Reynolds, inherited the historic Asheville home known as the Reynolds House and the 140 acres remaining of the estate. William Taswell married Mamie Spears in 1880 and they had 4 children including Robert Rice Reynolds, who was to become a U.S. Senator in the 1930’s.
