A Special Thank you to all the wonderful Crosby Scholar Students who came out

on March 8, 2017 to help clean and preserve our historic St. Paul’s Cemetery! 

Our May 15, 2017 meeting at the St. Paul's Cemetery was a wonderful event. John Wolfe III and Joe Pinnix provided wonderful insight and attributes to all those who were and are still involved in preserving this important Kernersville historic landmark. If you have not been there, you need to check it out.

Preserving historical Kernersville became critical in the 1980’s due to the rapid development of commercial and residential property.  The Kernersville Historical Preservation Society (KHPS) was formed in 1982 to serve as an advocate for the Town’s historical buildings and memories of past generations. Many historic homes had already been lost and with them the history of the people who lived there. Long-time Kernersville resident, Cornelia Adams was instrumental in founding and leading the KHPS for more than 10 years. Mrs. Adams and Mary Ruth Korner, unofficial town historians, did much to preserve the printed history of the town. Today, the KHPS’ mission is to carry on this work.
