Thursday, June 22

8:20 am - 4:00pm: Local History Tour: Meet in Hotel Lobby to form car/van pools at 8:20am. Departing at 8:30am sharp! Tickets for this tour must be pre-ordered with your Reunion Registration.

Photo of replica of kitchen at Criss Cross First stop is at Old Salem Visitor’s Center and the Frank L. Horton Museum which houses the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA). Here we will see recreations of the inside of many early American southern homes, of various periods, places and architecture.

The first room visited on the tour is an exact replicable of the Kitchen and Dining Room of “Criss Cross”, the home built by our immigrant ancestor, George Poindexter, in New Kent County, Virginia (click on photo to view larger image). Admission to this museum also includes entry to the historical, antique collectable Toy Museum.

After a break for lunch at the Salem Tavern (Recommended), or the Sandwich Shop or Winkler Bakery, we will depart for Reynolda House, former home of the tobacco magnet, Richard Joshua (R.J.) Reynolds. Today it is also the Southeastern Museum of American Art. Since there has been a recent close relationship established with Wake Forest University, this will be a Free Tour (Al, our host, has connections!), especially for PDA Reunion attendees, courtesy of the University. This is an immaculate home and museum. Tour begins promptly at 2:00pm. We will arrive back to the hotel by 4:00pm.

4:00 - 5:30 pm: Arrive at Hotel - Free Time: or join other Poindexter family members in the Poindexter Family Room.

5:45 pm: Meet in Hotel Lobby: Plan for Dinner – Dutch treat- at the Crosby Pub and Restaurant, at the Hotel.

7:30 - 9:00 pm: Bailie Bottoms: Learn about historical archeological discoveries from an excavation dig that has been going on since 1972. “Bailie Bottoms” includes land once owned by Captain Thomas Poindexter III and his wife Elizabeth “Betty” Pledge Poindexter.
