Körner's Folly

Nicknamed the "strangest home in
America," Körner's Folly is located 15 minutes
outside Winston-Salem in historic downtown
Kernersville. Built in 1878 by Jule Körner, and
continuously built upon since then, this quirky
former residence has become infamous as
an architectural oddity. Equally curious is the
story of Aunt Dealy, the former slave who was
"hired" and immediately freed by the Körner
family. Upon her death, Jule Körner bought
the land adjacent to his family cemetery and
buried Aunt Dealy alongside them, despite
segregationist laws prohibiting such an act at
the time. Descendants of the Körners continue
to be buried there today. While visiting, be
sure to stop by the little white cottage (now a
gift shop) to learn more of Aunt Dealy's story.
