About the Historic Village

Preserving our history. Sharing our story.

The Historic Village at the Kernersville Museum was established to explore what life looked like in our town more than 100 years ago and create hands-on educational experiences for all visitors.

Together with the Town of Kernersville, Kernersville Parks and Recreation and the Kernersville Historic Preservation Society, the Kernersville Museum has curated a historical exhibit unlike anything Kernersville has seen before. The Historic Village at the Kernersville Museum currently houses a flue-cured tobacco barn, 19th century weaning cabin, and stable.

The meticulous and time-accurate restoration of these buildings began with the construction of our tobacco barn in 2018 and concluded in the summer of 2019 with the completion of the *cabin and stable.

Visit the links below for more information and photographic timelines of the restoration and construction of the village buildings!
