This home was built in 1885 by a Chicago merchant named Charles Lapham.

The Lapham Patterson House is owned by the state, but operated by the Thomasville Museum of History. Organizers say residents can explore history Friday through Saturday until five in the evening.

People can now host parties, weddings and dinners in the historic home. Executive Director Ann Harrison says Lapham built the house as a winter vacation home.

"We are able to get a local grant to give transition funding so it gave us a year and a half to see how much income we can generate," says Harrison.

    This is very good news for everyone, but great news for people from the area. We do not have many places we can go, to be a piece of the history from 1885. A wedding at the Lapham Patterson House would be a moment to remember, this is for sure, and for certain.
