Historic Körner’s Folly at 413 S. Main St. in Kernersville will present Historical Botany: A Collaboration with Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 13. This event is part of the Körner’s Folly Victorian Parlor Series.
During the Victorian period, the parlor represented a gathering of people, partly to amuse one another and partly to increase the knowledge of guests through conversation.
The series reimagines the parlor, as facilitators explore topics related to Historic Körner’s Folly and popular culture of the Victorian era, all while sipping, snacking and socializing.
This program will begin with a lecture at the Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden at 215 S. Main St., presented by Adrienne Roethling, director of curation and mission delivery, and Josh Williams, garden manager. Based on examination of historical photos of Körner’s Folly interiors, Roethling and Williams will present their findings on historic houseplants, kitchen gardens and botany of the Victorian era.
The lecture will be followed by a flora-focused tour of Körner’s Folly Historic House Museum highlighting architectural details and paintings, as well as species and locations of the Körner family’s favorite plants. The program will end with tea and scones.
Tickets are $15 per person.
