Helpful Tips:

  • While you’re in downtown Kernersville, visit a local restaurant  for dinner or a glass of wine, such as  Giada’s Trattoria or J. Pepper’s Southern Grille, before your candlelight tour.  Check out our complete listing of local restaurants here.
  • The tour is self-guided, so you can take as much time or as little time as you like in each room.  On average, people spend 45 minutes – 1 hour during the Candlelight Tours.  Costumed guides will be stationed throughout the house, so feel free to ask them questions.
  • Before you arrive, watch our 9 minute Tour Introduction Video on YouTube. This will help to reduce wait times to enter the house.
  • Bring a camera! Pictures are allowed inside the house; this will be a perfect opportunity for Christmas photos.
  • The house is dimly lit during Candlelight Tours, so please use caution as you follow the tour route.
  • Parking is available in the gravel parking lot and grass field beside Körner’s Folly.

A very special thank you to our event sponsor Robinson & Lawing, LLP.
