Back on November 23rd, 2009 we published a story on the fabulous future for the stunning 17,000 square foot barn which was part of WinMock Farm in Davie County. Today, Sterling Events officially announced the name, logo and a new web site for this outstanding project.
The name of the event center will be WinMock at Kinderton. The name was selected to honor the property’s rich history and to stay true to the barn’s original namesake.
The historic property, a gorgeous white dairy barn with a striking rounded, red roof overlooking the Yadkin River, will be transformed into an upscale venue for weddings, corporate meetings, and social events and is set for completion in the first half of 2011.
The property, 9 miles west of Winston-Salem and 9 miles east of Mocksville, has been known as Win-Mock Farms since the late 1920’s. Sterling Events gave the name a fresh look with a new logo that now incorporates Kinderton as its location. The barn is located inside Kinderton, a high-end retail and commercial center located on the eastern edge of Davie County in the town of Bermuda Run, NC.
To keep the events industry and the local community up to date on their progress, Sterling has also launched a website for WinMock at Kinderton at www.winmock.com. The website features history, current pictures of exterior and interior spaces, a preliminary architecture plan for the events center and a blog that will track the renovation progress as it unfolds.
WinMock at Kinderton survives from the estate built in the late 1920’s by S. Clay Williams, a former president of RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company. During its prime, Win-Mock Farms, as it was known, was one of the largest dairies in North Carolina with one of the biggest and best herds of Red Poll cattle in the country.
The dairy barn and surrounding buildings have recently been nominated for The National Register of Historic Places under criteria set by the NC Historic Preservation Office and the US Park Service.
