These details are readily observable near rentals in Kernersville, North Carolina, where the history is as rich as the vivid landscape.

In 1791, George Washington passed through the area, and was served breakfast at this historic site. In the years the followed, those with Kernersville rentals have celebrated their hometown as traditional American city with important political ties. In 2005, President George W. Bush visited the town's Deere-Hitachi plant to deliver a speech on the country's economy, and in 2008, Bill Clinton spoke at the local R. B. Genn High School to campaign for his wife, Hillary Clinton, in the Democratic primary.
