Guided Tour

Guests will receive a guided tour of all three floors (mobility permitting) of the Lapham-Patterson House and learn about the residents, architecture, and technology of the 1885 Resort Era “cottage.” Thomasville History Center members receive free admission to the Lapham-Patterson House for themselves and their guests.

Closures: When planning your visit, please visit our Upcoming Events page for any scheduling conflicts. The Lapham-Patterson House is available for special event rentals which occasionally require the museum to close to the public. 

All group visits of 10 adults (age 18+) or more must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance with a member of the staff. Arrangements for visits to both locations are subject to each site’s group tour rate, must be scheduled in advance, and are dependent upon staff availability.
