Pardon Our Mess: Decorating In Progress November 6 – 28, 2019

Each year, Körner’s Folly is decorated from floor to ceiling in holiday lights, garland, and adornments.  To transform into this Victorian holiday masterpiece, all 22 rooms are “adopted” by local civic clubs, volunteers, and organizations.  Together, these groups and individuals decorate Körner’s Folly throughout the month of November (November 6 – 28, 2019).

If you plan to tour during this time, please beware that the Folly may not look it’s finest, with boxes and decorations filling each room.  If you would like a behind the scenes look at how our holiday experience comes together, then this may be the time for you.  If you would prefer to see our completed Victorian holiday experience, then we recommend touring after Thanksgiving.  We officially open for the holiday season on the day after Thanksgiving: Friday, November 29, 2019 @ 10am.

*Admission tickets are NOT discounted during this time.
