Walking Around Graylyn

Earlier this summer a wedding took us to Winston Salem, North Carolina

where we had the great fortune to be staying at Graylyn

Graylyn

Built by Bowman and Nathalie Gray in 1932

Graylyn was one of the largest private homes in North Carolina…

The property was given to the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in 1946

and served as a Psychiatric Hospital.

It became a conference center in 1993…
