Koerner's Folly

Kernersville is actually a phonetic misspelling of its namesake Koerner family. This family is not only responsible for the town's name, but also for one of its quirkiest and special attractions, a late 19th-century house called Koerner's Folly. The home's name is a cheeky nod to the skepticism the home's owner and designer, Jule Koerner, faced as he planned to build this outlandish home, which includes many unique features, such as seven levels and three floors, trapdoors and cubbyholes, and ceilings that range in height from 5 to 25 feet. Today, this home is open to the public and has been lovingly preserved and maintained.

Paul J. Ciener Botani

Located in Kernersville's historic district, the Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden is a unique resource for anyone interested in gardening. Visitors to the garden can enjoy guided or self-guided tours of the 7-acre facility, which includes 15 distinct gardens with more than 1300 different plants. Here you will find flowers, trees, and vegetables. But the Ciener Botanical Garden is more than just a place to look at pretty plants. There are numerous educational opportunities directed towards both adults and children available here, including continuing education courses and a regular lecture series for adults, in addition to youth programs for kids.

Events at Fourth of J

Every year, Kernersville residents swarm to the town's Fourth of July Park for the annual Honeybee Festival. This summertime event includes live music, carnival-like attractions for kids, and lots of local honey from nearby beekeepers. But there is more to this park than just the Honeybee Festival. Naturally, the park is also a great place to gather for its namesake holiday. On a more regular basis, Fourth of July Park has a dog park that is a great asset for Kernersville residents with four-legged family members, making it a great community resource all year round.
