Körner's Folly, the showcase home of artist, designer, decorator Jule Gilmer Körner, has intrigued neighbors and visitors to Kernersville, NC for over 125 years.
This historic and eccentric structure offers 22 rooms spread out over seven levels on three floors. Ceiling heights range from 5-1/2 feet to 25 feet, with 10-foot doorways and 2-foot passageways. Ornate mantles top the 15 fireplaces, and decorative murals and detailed woodwork adorn every room. A winding staircase dizzies the mind as it takes you from level to level. These are but a few of the magical enchantments to behold in this grand home.
