A Note from the Thomasville History Center

In celebration of the centennial Rose Show & Festival this April 22-24, we will open the doors of the front of the museum for a special exhibition of Rose Queen gowns, and other Rose Festival items from our collections. The rest of the exhibits are still under construction and will re-open soon! Our grounds and historic buildings are open for self-guided tours each day from 10am until 4pm. A donation of $5 per person is greatly appreciated. 

The Lapham-Patterson is open on Fridays and Saturdays.  Please review our re-opening informationbefore your arrival. Visitors must follow all CDC recommendations for social distancing, face coverings, and hand hygiene during their visit. Scavenger hunts are available for guests to enjoy as they explore.
