Mom and I were in town for a family wedding, and had time to take in a few local sights. We did not realize that Thomasville was a spa resort for the Northerners. Rich in history and beautiful. Grateful it was preserved!

This is a very unique house and the guided tour has tons of history on this which will leave you thinking was it on purpose or just bad craftsman ship. One of the rooms in the house has 11 walls.

This house and the occupants were truly strange and quirky. Few right angles are in the floor plan, nothing is the same height, carpentry is unique, and furnishings are interesting. The tour guide was a young man fron New Jersey who did an excellent job...More

The private tour of the house with Joshua was very interesting but the best part was the very generous offer of docent Joshua to stay late for us . He guided us on a very informative tour and was very patient answering our many questions.
