The Kernersville Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of our unique town. Do you have a story to tell about our town or an artifact to share? If so, please contact us so that we can get more information.
In 2013 the Town of Kernersville and the Kernersville Historic Preservation Society entered into an agreement, establishing a new Kernersville Museum. In the late 1800s David Bodenhamer House, commonly known as the Bellamy House, is located at 127 West Mountain Street. The donation of the Bellamy House, by John and Bobbie Wolfe, represents an opportunity for the citizens of Kernersville to preserve their stories and the Town’s roots. This is as an opportunity for families to come together to be able to learn about Kernersville’s history and for children to have hands-on experience.
The Museum is seen as a boost to Kernersville’s economy by increasing tourism over time. As you will see in the History of the Foundation, it also took under its wings The Kernersville Depot and has the responsibility of maintaining it, as well as the House Museum.
In 2016, the Kernersville Museum Foundation hired its first Executive Director to staff and manage the day to day operations of the Kernersville House Museum and the Kernersville Depot. Exciting new changes are underway for the future as we preserve the past and bring it to life for the Kernersville Community.
