Kernersville Little Theatre Caroling
Did you know many of the Christmas carols we sing today were written during the Victorian period? Such as: Angels We Have Heard on High, Away in a Manger, Good King Wenceslas, Here We Come A-wassailing, Deck the Halls, and Jingle Bells! Here's Kernersville Little Theatre singing "The First Noel" written in 1823

Master Bedroom Ribbon Cutting
On Saturday, July 11, 2020, we held a private ceremony to officially unveil in the Main Bedroom and North Entrance & Stairway restorations. From the staff and Board of the Körner’s Folly Foundation, we wish a very special thank you Patty and David Peeler who have restored these spaces in honor of John and Bobbie Wolfe for their extraordinary contributions to this amazing home 💝👏 Consider a donation today to help us keep up the momentum for future restoration projects!
Today for our #VictorianRecreationSeries we're playing the Game of Graces! 🥁🎀
This deceptively simple game was played by girls (and boys) in the 1800s, so-named because it was thought to help teach graceful, fluid movement.
We enjoy playing it with all our friends on the lawn at the Folly, but you can also play with two people, or even by yourself! The hoops, wrapped with bright ribbon, are launched high in the air with sticks or dowels in an "X" and caught by another player.
Check out our friends below for a demonstration, and follow the link to a cool DIY Game of Graces! However you plan on recreating, enjoy your weekend! #StayGraceful #Hoopla #GoodOldFashionedFun
Spring has been challenging for us all, but these uncharted waters have inspired us to connect with our community in new ways 🌊⛵️ Take a look at some of our restoration work, with this message from Körner’s Folly Director Dale Pennington to all our Folly Friends:
Rose Room Furniture Restoration
The Rose Room is looking more lovely than ever, thanks to the fine work of Fat Rabbit Furniture Refurbishing! Doré’s dresser, desk, ottoman, and innovative, space-saving corner dresser were all designed by her father Jule, and are happily returned to their original mahogany finish and smooth-gliding drawers. These pieces are just a part of what makes Körner’s Folly so unique!
Wander through this house…and see what sparks your imagination...
