During the events of World War Two, Reidsville was the home to at least one, though some reports suggest two, prisoner of war camps for captured Nazi personnel. The prison camp location has largely been lost to time, but is believed to have stood near where a gas station/self storage company is located near the fringes of the city. Archaeological research into the area have turned up a number of German artifacts, though with the development and addition of a number of houses, it is not clear if this was the location; or was one of the many onion fields which the prisoners worked in.
