Inscription.  In 1923. Katharine Smith Reynolds built a forty-five acre polo complex for the newly formed Winston-Salem Polo Team. The team competed throughout the Southeast and included members of the Hanes, Reynolds, and Chatham families. The complex was part of the Reynolda Estate and contained stables, two fields, viewing stands and a clubhouse. Matches attracted as many as 3,000 spectators before polo declined in popularity during the Great Depression. Speas Elementary School was built on the site in 1959.
