In 1919, the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company built this neighborhood of bungalows to ease a housing shortage. Initially, a majority of the development was designated for Reynolds's white employees. The 1931 construction of Atkins High School for African-Americans just to the north resulted in a shift from white to black renters within one year. Although intended as a rent-to-own program, most home sales in Reynoldstown were made after 1937, and predominantly to African-Americans. New houses built on side lots created a pattern of alternating ca. 1920 and 1940 houses that reflects the progression from renters to homeowners and from white housing to African-American. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.
