Balfour House, Circa 1900, Thomasville

Though it’s among Thomasville’s oldest neighborhoods, the Tockwotton district is characterized by various turn-of-the-century revivals. This was the home of R. C. Balfour, who operated a popular downtown saloon before Prohibition, which came early to Thomasville, in 1899. Balfour diversified and created Georgia Crate & Basket, which is still in business today. His sons created the Balfour Lumber Company and all of the boards used in the construction of the house were hand picked.
