A south Georgia neighborhood is nationally recognized for its history.

Thomasville's Glenwood Historic District was recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

City leaders say the Glenwood Historic District was established in the 1920's and was one of Thomasville's first modern suburbs. They say it stands out because most of the houses in the district are Ranch Houses.

"We're really proud that this is Thomasville's 10th National Registered Historic district. It really shows the rest of Georgia and the U.S. that Thomasville is actively preserving it's history," Brent Runyon, Director of Thomasville Landmarks, said.

Officials say being a National Historic Registered District does not place any limitations on developing or changing homes for homeowners. They say homeowners receive tax incentives.
