The Thomas County Historical Society is proud to honor the long-standing tradition of celebrating tricks, treats, and all things Halloween at the Lapham-Patterson House this fall. For decades, the annual reading of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” delighted generations of Thomasville residents. Jeff Lovett will provide a recitation of Edgar Allen Poe’s, The Raven, at 6pm on Friday October 27. Following the reading, Historical Society staff will provide hourly tours of the Lapham-Patterson House. Tours are available for $10 per adult and $5 per student ages 6-17. Those guests who would like to paint a pumpkin in the backyard as an added activity may do so for $5 each. Registration is required.
All tours are limited in size, so those interested in participating should make reservations early. The Bookshelf will host a “pop-up” shop at the Lapham-Patterson House featuring works by Edgar Allen Poe and other seasonal titles for readers of all ages.
