Korners Folly


Tour the “Strangest House in the World”

You’ll never visit another home like Körner’s Folly. Located between Greensboro and Winston-Salem, the unique property was built by designer, decorator and painter Jule Körner to showcase his work. After he married, he renovated the house multiple times to accommodate a growing family. Today, you’ll find 15 different fireplaces, ceilings ranging from 5.5 to 25 feet, pivoting windows, cubbyholes and trap doors throughout the space. It’s even rumored to be haunted. You can explore the home on your own or book an educational field trip with a Children’s Tour or Puppet Show. Körner’s Folly hosts several seasonal events, including National Puppetry Day, art festivals and a Victorian Christmas at Körner’s. Make sure you find out why Bob was the most unique member of the family, then stop by the gift shop to bring a Bob souvenir home with you.
