Victorian Parlor Series: A Behind the Scenes Look at Interior Restoration

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 @ 5:30-7:30pm

This year has brought another phase of interior restoration to Körner’s Folly with the restoration of three rooms – the Cellar, Smoking Lounge, and Den. With the completion of this most recent project, 8 of Körner’s Folly’s 22 rooms have been completely restored. Join us to celebrate the completion of this project and learn more about the restoration process. All 22 rooms of the house museum will be open for you to explore and you will have the opportunity to meet the contractors who have been involved throughout the restoration. Chris Thompson, general Contractor of the project, and Dev Clark of JD Clark Company, Plaster Restoration and Repair will be available to answer your questions about the restoration process and the unique challenges of restoring Körner’s Folly. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to step behind the scenes to meet the people restoring Körner’s Folly and learn about future restoration efforts. Must be 21+ to attend.

This event is part of our new adult education program, the Victorian Parlor Series. While sipping, snacking, and socializing, we explore a topic related to Historic Körner’s Folly or popular culture of the Victorian era. During the Victorian period, the parlor represented a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. Each presentation will be kicked-off with a historic Victorian parlor game and an adult beverage is included in your ticket price.

A Behind the Scenes Look at Interior Restoration is an open-house style event. There is no timed entry, attendees should plan to arrive anytime between 5:30-7pm.

Ticket sales for this event are now closed.
