Inscription. Five Row was community of African-American farmworkers and their families who worked at Reynolda, the estate of Katharine and R.J. Reynolds. First occupied in 1916, it began as two rows of five cottages and gardens that fronted an unpaved road along Silas Creek. The Five Row School was active with academic classes and Sunday worship services from 1918 to the 1940s. Many children raised at Five Row were later employed as domestic servants Reynolda House. Five Row was demolished in 1961 to make way for Silas Creek Parkway.
