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.
