The original home was built by Charles and Stella Penn around 1908. Charles was the Vice President of American Tobacco, which was the leading employer in Rockingham County. He played an important figure in Reidsville’s tobacco industry and is largely responsible for developing the popular “Lucky Strikes” brand of cigarettes. He worked his entire life in the tobacco industry and rose through the ranks at American Tobacco Company to one of the highest and most commanding stations. The home burned in 1931 and was rebuilt in 1932 in the Colonial Revival style. In 1980, the home was donated to the City of Reidsville to be open to the community and public for special events, weddings, and more. The current home is an excellent example of Colonial Revival design. It is the largest and most elaborate Colonial Revival residence from the 1920-1940 period still standing in Reidsville.
