Wonderful place to visit. Very unusual, very old, historical. I even met someone who use to play in the house as a child before it was restored. What a great playhouse.

This site was saved by locals from destruction, and the house and its owner (long since deceased) are somwhat of a hoot. It's a very different type of place from any other house tour or any other historical site. We were happy we visited, and we spentmoare than an hour here. Parts of the house are rather spectacular and wildly unexpected. While the locals have done well with the place, it needs more work. And they need to tell more of a story about the guy who build it and his family. The price is a bit high ($10 a head), but they need the support to improve the place.

Korner's Folly is a house like no other! Each room offers something new, and often something cleverly done. It's good to see the home is being restored. The self-guided tour allows you to look at your own pace, but it does require reading quite a bit of information posted in each room.

This interesting old house served as a model for the builder who owned it. The rooms and half rooms showcase a variety of architectural and decorative styles. An different kind of stop. Worth seeing, but not spectacular.

This is a very interesting house. It has unique rooms both for layout and style. The house has a history story to go with it. Seek a tour with guide to learn about the home.
