The beautiful, iconic structure dominates the view near the western bank of the Yadkin River where US Highway 158 crosses into Davie County.
Built in the early 1900’s by S. Clay Williams, former president of the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, the barn’s unique architectural style features a cavernous 7,200 square foot loft. The barn, officially listed as Win-Mock Farm Dairy, was added to the register on December 27th, 2010 in recognition of its importance to the history of North Carolina and the United States. During its prime, Win-Mock Farm Dairy was one of the largest dairies in North Carolina with one of the biggest and best herds of Red Poll cattle in the country.
Historic Structure Getting New Lease on Life!
The historic barn is being transformed by Sterling Events Group into a special events center for corporate functions, weddings and special events. “We are so pleased to have WinMock receive the recognition it so duly deserves, said Wayne Thomas, president of Sterling Events Group. “We consider ourselves stewards of this magnificent barn and look forward to unveiling the beautifully renovated property this summer.”
Historic Architectural Integrity Being Carefully Maintained
Michael West of Winston-Salem based West and Stem Architecture led the redesign of WinMock barn. “We have been working very closely with both the State and the U.S. Department of Interior to ensure the plans for this grand barn stay true to its historical integrity,” said West, principal architect “Each design decision has been carefully scrutinized from both a functional and historical perspective.”
