THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –The Thomas County Historical Society wants your help to win 100-thousand dollars in grant money.

Thomasville's historic Lapham-Patterson house is currently in third place in a national "Save Our Parks" contest.

The house is up against major parks such as the Smokey Mountains and Yellowstone National park.

But it's up to America to decide who wins the prize money.

"It's not that the other state and national parks aren't worthwhile, they're all wonderful," says Ephraim Rotter, the curator for Thomas County's Historical Society. 

"It's just they all have multi-million dollar budgets and it'll just disappear in their budgets where it'll make a huge difference for us.'

If the Lapham-Patterson house wins the money will go toward much needed renovations.

You can cast your vote here. Voting ends August 31st.
