WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A headquarters of North Carolina’s tobacco history is up for sale.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported Monday that Reynolds American Inc. has put its historic former headquarters on the market.

The building housed the headquarters of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. since it opened in 1929. The company recently finished consolidating its downtown Winston-Salem employees into a
neighboring building.

The 22-story building was designed by the same firm that later did the Empire State Building and is reminiscent of that landmark, with four tiers topped by a flagpole. Winston-Salem’s building was the tallest south of Baltimore when completed.

County tax records value the Reynolds Building at about $12 million.
