Thomasville - Lapham-Patterson House Historic Site

The Lapham-Patterson House is a monument to the imagination, creative engineering and craftsmanship of the Victorian Era. Fishscale shingles, oriental-style porch decorations, long-leaf pine inlaid floors, and a remarkable double-flue chimney with a walk-through stairway and cantilevered balcony exemplify the quality and skill of its Victorian creators. Due to its architectural significance, the Lapham-Patterson House was named a National Historic Landmark in 1975.

I just love this house we took a Saturday tour for from five bucks. It has really cool and old stuff. My favorite thing was not being told no you can't touch that. This is a must see place!

Wonderful historic home with knowledgeable tour guides from the local historic society. The first floor is ADA compliant, though like most old homes the stairs to the second and third floors are tight and winding. The Patterson family have donated many items from both their times in the house and from previous owners, so there are touches of history throughout. Don't miss the Queen Anne window on the third floor! I don't know what Mr. Lapham was thinking when he built this home, but I'm glad it still stands for us to see.
