Graylyn International Conference Center
The Graylyn Estate is the perfect place to explore with your family. Original owners Bowman and Nathalie Gray were devoted to their sons, and designed the estate to be welcoming to all visitors. The Gray family was also deeply committed to philanthropic endeavors and supporting the greater community of Winston-Salem. Today, we incorporate those values in everything we do, from serving a guest to hosting a retreat for a Fortune 500 company.
Our proceeds are allocated, in part, to funding full-ride scholarships to Wake Forest University through the Graylyn Scholarship. Each year, the University awards this full scholarship to an incoming student of outstanding academic quality who would otherwise be financially unable to attend.
