About The Event

Created around the turn-of-the-century as the planned community of Mallette Heights by E.M. Mallette and developing as educational hub well into the midcentury, Jefferson Street is as charming as they come. In 1915, the nearby East Side School, now the Thomasville Center for the Arts, was established as part of Mallette Heights and was the first public school in Thomasville. The historic houses that line the street are exemplary of early twentieth century designs, varied in type and style as they are, and their landscaping still harkens to the park-like atmosphere of the Edwardian Age. From classical revival houses to Craftsman bungalows to American Small Houses, these residences display an enviable amount of integrity, retaining so much of their original features that contemporaries of the houses would not feel out of place nor out of time. This neighborhood, built for middle class carpenters, teachers, and bankers (in fact, there was a push to rename the area “Bankers Hill”), is located within the Dawson Street National Register District.
