Located in Kernersville, just ten miles east of Winston-Salem, this building is touted the \"strangest house in the world.\" This architectural oddity was built by Jule Korner and rises to 100 feet in height, creating a striking structure that includes 22 rooms on three floors and seven levels with ceilings ranging from six to 25 feet, and no two doors or windows in a room that are alike. The house includes a theatre that was used by the Korner children, 20 unique fireplaces of differing designs, decorative murals by German master Caesar Milch, and elaborate tile and woodwork.
The director, Connie Martin, gave us a tour that we will not forget. The House is in need of repairs and locally we need to support the effort to help raise funds. The needed repairs, however, doesn't mask the unusual beauty. Our group enjoyed every minute with our tour guide. I think you will miss alot if you only do a walk in tour, so make a reservation and enjoy this Strange, Great, house, it is well worth your time and money.
Korner's Folly is actually in Kernersville, NC and well worth taking the time to tour this unusual house. The price for a self-tour is only $6.00 and worth every penny.
As you enter the front door, a member of the staff will give you a quick briefing on what to expect and a little about the history of the home. You'll be in for a real treat as you explore the 22 rooms on 3 floors and 7 levels. Beautiful furniture, paintings and murals are just a few of the beauty you will encounter. Be sure to read the short explanations as you enter each room. You go along at your own pace.
The only disappointment is that no photographs are allowed inside the house. It's still worth a trip to enjoy the designs and ideas of a designer in our past.
