The cost of these applications vary based on the complexity of the project but start at $2500. The fee includes photography, maps, survey work, historical research, filing of official park service forms and follow-up.
Preservation Field Services
Thomasville Landmarks works with owners of historic homes and other buildings to provide technical advice free-of-charge.
Thomasville Landmarks supports preservation in Thomasville and the Thomas County area. We will assist any non-profit group or community organization that has historic sites, properties or resources. In the past, we have assisted churches in the writing of work plans. We have worked with small community groups that are preserving our rural cemeteries and landscapes. We have conducted workshops and training for towns wanting to establish local and national register districts. With a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, we are working with community groups to increase their capacity.
