The last tour leaves at 8:45 p.m. Tickets are available on the website.

Looking for a full day of holiday cheer? Plan your trip to South Main Street on Saturday, Dec. 10 for A Kernersville Yuletide. Starting at 10 a.m., three Kernersville destinations are collaborating to create an enchanting holiday destination. As you stroll down Main Street, stop at the Kernersville Moravian Church for a traditional Candle Tea and historic demonstrations, continue on to Körner’s Folly to explore the 1880s house museum adorned in Victorian Christmas decor, and then end at the Paul J. Ciener Botanical Gardens where you can find unique gifts and inspiration for holiday decorating. 

Körner’s Folly is the home of artist and designer Jule Körner.  Built in 1880, the house originally displayed his interior design portfolio.
