Thomasville Landmarks is a non-profit, historic preservation organization dedicated to protecting, preserving and promoting the architecture, heritage and history of the Thomas County area.

Our members advocate for the preservation and promotion of Thomasville's unique Victorian character and Thomas County's rural Heritage through advocacy, programs and and recognition.

Our offices are located in the historic Hardy Bryan House, the oldest two-story house in the city and once the home of a wealthy planter.


Old Library

The Old Library

In 1964, a small group of concerned citizens banded together to encourage the preservation of Thomasville’s unique environment. The movement started in response to a crisis: the town had just lost its Italianate Library from the downtown area on South Crawford Street which was replaced by a City Fire Station, and other important landmarks were threatened.

Landmarks was incorporated in 1966 and has grown tremendously over the years.
