Recently we went on a long weekend trip to southeastern Georgia and explored the history and culture through another one of the Georgia State Parks, the Lapham-Patterson House Historic Site. The historic site is in Thomasville, GA, a small town with a variety of beautiful old homes. Thomasville is rather small, but quaint and allows visitors to experience a a little Southern town. The Lapham-Patterson home had several owners, but the main design was due to a merchant who once lived there, and he developed some oddities in the house. Visitors are able to go on a tour of the house and learn more about the residents and history during the time they lived there. The house was well furnished with beautiful old pieces. For those who enjoy historic homes this is a fantastic place to visit. The tour lasted for around 45 minutes and was rather informative. We enjoyed learning more about the families that lived there and the reason behind some of the unusual architecture. The house is near the Florida border, as well as other Georgia state parks such as Kolomoki Mounds State Park, making for a nice long weekend exploring Georgia and learning more about its history and culture.
