Lapham-Patterson House
Address: 626 N Dawson St, Thomasville, GA, United States

This holiday season, the Lapham-Patterson House and generous community partners will deck the halls!  Local organizations, schools, and individuals have volunteered to lend their talents and holiday cheer to decorate the first floor of the historic 1885 home.  The decorations will reflect the unique history, culture, and natural habitat of the Red Hills region.  Decorations will be in place just in time for Victorian Christmas- December 8-9, 2016- and the community is invited to join us the evening of December 10 for readings of the Christmas classic, “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” at 5pm and 6pm and to see the decorations. The decorations will remain on display for the duration of the holiday season.    Admission to this event is free, and no reservations are required.


If your business or organization is interested in participating, please call 229-226-7664 or email by Monday, December 5.
