Named for its location, nine miles west of Winston-Salem and nine miles east of Mocksville, WinMock at Kinderton
survives from the estate built by S. Clay Williams, a former president of RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co.
During its prime, Win-Mock Farms was one of the largest dairies in North Carolina with one of the biggest and best herds of Red Poll cattle in the country. It was said that Mr. Williams was passionate about agriculture and ran the farm hands-on like a ship captain instructing every facet of the operation until his death in 1949.
After the passing of Mr. Williams, the Bahnson family purchased the property, operating 850 acres of the Win-Mock Farm and preserving its history until
the late 1990ís when it was sold as part of a commercial development package.
Restoration of the historical property by Sterling Events Group began in November, 2010 with the intent to turn this extraordinary barn into an
elegant venue for weddings, social functions, and corporate events.
WinMock, following months of intense renovations, opened in June, 2011 and now features a stunning, spacious Loft ballroom, multiple breakout meeting rooms, two private dining rooms, an executive boardroom and two outdoor terraces.
The historic property was added to the United States Register of Historic Places in December, 2010.
