“a labyrinth of uniqueness”

Designed to house the portfolio of interior decorator and artist, Jule Gilmer Körner, the 131-year-old Körner’s Folly is a labyrinthine tribute to one man’s unique architectural vision. Located in historic downtown Kernersville, Körner's Folly was built from 1878-1880. Körner's Folly now has 22 rooms located on 7 levels with 15 fireplaces. Located on the top level is one of the first private little theaters built in the US. Throughout the house you will see murals on almost every ceiling, elaborately carved woodwork, numerous cast-plaster details, and original furnishings.

You can watch the introductory video when you buy your tickets. It includes clips of a weird/creepy puppet show which is apparently put on for kids to teach them the history of the town. The house has a lot of color and such a great layout! In its day its owners hosted a lot of activities and events that made their home a social center for the town. They have free parking on site.
