More than one hundred years ago, Thomasville was the preferred winter resort destination for America’s elite. Guests from across the country enjoyed the luxurious hospitality of the Mitchell House hotel after its grand re-opening in 1886. This year, the Thomasville History Center is reimagining a season’s opening celebration and invites you to be a part of Pining for Hospitality: A Mitchell House Inspired Supper on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at the Thomasville History Center.
We have scoured our archives for inspiration from real Mitchell House dinners and we will emulate the atmosphere of elegance and respite that the Northern and Midwestern “pleasure seekers” experienced on their visits to Thomasville.
Funds raised from this event support the ongoing programs and operations of the History Center.
Cocktails begin at 6pm, Dinner begins at 7:30pm
Raffle tickets for the LeConte Pear Package are available. Enter to win all you need to start your own LeConte Pear orchard!
Raffle ticket pricing: $20/individual tickets; $100 for 6
