Ball House, Circa 1888, Thomasville

The Ball House was renovated by Thomasville architect Rod Brantely in 1948. Brantley added the chinoiserie porch, likely to distinguish it from its next door twin.

Seixas House, Circa 1835, Thomasville

The Seixas [pronounced say-shus] family were among the early settlers of Thomasville and this house, now an office, is the oldest one-story house in Thomasville. It was moved to this location by Thomasville Landmarks to prevent demolition.

Antebellum Cottage, 1850s, Thomasville

This circa 1853-1855 cottage has recently been renovated. The dormer is a later addition that detracts from its Greek Revival appearance.

Hardy Bryan House, 1833, Thomasville

Built for one of Thomasville’s early settlers, the Hardy Bryan House is among the most important surviving antebellum structures in the region. When it was built, Thomasville was still quite rural and the house served as the center of a working plantation. Bryan died in 1859 and the house had several subsequent owners, including the Cater family. Today, it serves as the headquarters of Thomasville Landmarks, an organization at the forefront of local preservation since the early 1960s.

The cross pattée on the pediment has become an iconic architectural symbol of Thomasville.

Central Hallway House, Cuthbert

This house may be among the oldest in the neighborhood. I hope to learn more about its history.
