Lapham-Patterson locking it's doors for good

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville's only national historic landmark is closing.

The Lapham-Patterson House was built in 1885...and it's last tour will be given June 14th.

It's closure is part of deep budget cuts in the State's Parks and Recreation Division.

Two people are on staff at the house, one will be transferred, the other let go.

Although it's set to close June 14th, a group of Thomasville citizens is working to re-open it as soon as possible. It cost about $50,000 a year to operate the house.
