We loved the details in the home. I love seeing old fire places and antique furniture! We hope to come back when the Christmas decor is down to see how things look. Please let us know if you have any future specials.

Very interesting house and furnishings. Would go back but not during holidays because there were so many decorations that it impaired the visibility of some of the furnishings and architectural details of which I enjoy viewing.

It is a little treasure hidden in the small community of Kernersville.

Very interesting...everyone should go see it. Not something I would go back and do again, though.

Very interesting. Much bigger on the inside than it looks.

From Our Editors

It's almost as if Jule Gilmer Körner's home was designed to be a public attraction. In 1878, the decorator, painter, and interior and furniture designer began building a house specifically intended to showcase his myriad talents. The result was a whimsical Victorian creation where each room brings new and unexpected surprises, including a total of 15 unique fireplaces and ceilings that range from 5 to 25 feet high.

  • Size: Self-guided tours take around 60 minutes as groups explore 22 rooms spread across three floors.
  • Eye Catcher: The reception room exemplifies Victorian style with elegant woodwork and ceiling featuring ornate murals and cove molding.
  • Permanent Mainstay: On the top level, Cupid's Park Theater—originally built for Körner's children—hosts regular shows by local performers, continuing a tradition that began in 1897.
  • Pro Tip: Pay attention to the details. Throughout the entire home, no two doorways or windows are exactly the same. Check out the 8 minute tour introduction video in the gift shop prior to beginning your tour.
  • For the Children: Groups can request scavenger-hunt materials before beginning a self-guided tour.
