Magnificent Folly


Author(s):
Abstract:
Jules Gilmer Korner was known for painting Bull Durham bulls on Southern barns, but it was the home he built in Kernersville in 1880 that is his legacy. Dubbed \"Korner's Folly,\" the red brick building stands 100 feet high, has seven stories, and is a wonder of opulence, oddity, detail, and combined architectural styles. The 22-room mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
