Körner’s Folly is home to hundreds of Jule Körner’s original furnishings, paintings, and objects. We are fortunate that Jule designed the Folly’s furnishings on such a grand scale — without the benefit of their sheer size, many pieces might have been lost to time during the house’s many repurposes, including a funeral parlor, architect’s office, and antique shop. An estimated ninety percent of the furnishings in the house today are original, and add to our understanding of Jule’s design process, aesthetic, and the needs and wants of the typical upper-middle-class Victorian estate.
Our Collecting Mission
The Körner’s Folly Foundation collects, preserves, and interprets artifacts and materials pertaining to Körner’s Folly, the Körner family, and Kernersville’s history for visitors to understand and appreciate today’s town through a knowledge of its past through exhibits, interpretive rooms, and educational programs.
The Körner’s Folly Foundation collects only those objects and artifacts of the greatest relevance to its mission, typically with a direct connection to Körner’s Folly or the Körner family. To contact Suzanna Ritz, Operations & Programs Manager regarding potential donations, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (336) 996-7922.
