Chinqua Penn in Reidsville, NC

Size: 1024×681

Chinqua Penn in Reidsville, North Carolina was built in the 1920s by Thomas Jefferson Penn (1875-1946) — a businessman and farmer — and his wife, Beatrice Schoellkopf Penn (1881-1965). The Chinqua Penn Plantation was named after the chinquapin, a chestnut tree that grew in abundance here before being destroyed by a blight in the 1930s.
