Our Town

Kernersville, located in Forsyth County, is known as the Heart of the Triad because of its location between High Point, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem. Our friendly town is rich in history and tradition but filled with innovative ideas, spirit, and civic pride. The historic district has multiple listings on the National Register of Historic Places. One of these is Körner’s Folly, built in 1880 by Joseph Kerner’s grandson, the famous painter and designer Jule Körner. Many buildings continue to function as homes, churches, historic lodging, restaurants, offices, museums, and other venues. The Kernersville Little Theatre, active since 1977, houses its office in a former surveyor’s office from the early 1900s. The inviting year round, seven acre Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden is located nearby.

The education system offers public and private schools with four high schools and multiple middle and elementary schools. There is a community college branch located in Kernersville as well as close proximity to colleges and universities. Kernersville has many parks for relaxation and recreation with one offering a public 5K cross country course which hosts the annual state high school championships. Triad Park has The Carolina Field of Honor which is the largest veterans’ memorial on the east coast outside Washington, D.C. It is the setting for many patriotic events throughout the year. A new state of the art Veteran’s Affairs Health Care Center opened in 2016 due to the large concentration of veterans in the area.

Our town is a great place to live, work or retire, raise a family, and be a part of DAR. We hope to hear from you!
