THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The city of Roses just purchased a property known as Roses to be the future home of a festival of roses.

The Thomasville City Council recently approved the $1.8 million purchase of the Rose's property on Dawson Street.

City officials plan to use the property as an events center for the city as well as corporations.

"There are a fair number of groups around the state who have contacted us wanting to hold an event in Thomasville, but have been unable to do so because quite frankly we don't have the facilities to do it," said Mayor Max Beverly.

The Thomasville Visitors Center, now housed at City Hall, will also eventually move to the new Dawson Street site.
