Pining for Hospitality: A Mitchell House Inspired Supper

October 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


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 13, 2018.

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. If you would like to be a part of this very special event, please complete and return the Sponsor Information Form by August 31, 2018. 

So that we may include your support on all event publicity, please submit your completed Sponsor Form by August 31. 

Forms can be returned by email, history@rose.net, or by mail:

PO Box 1922
Thomasville, GA 31799

Reservations will be available starting August 31, 2018 online via Eventbrite. Please include the names of all attendees in your party.

Invitations will be mailed in early September and RSVP’s will be accepted through October 10, 2018.
