SMS Spotlight: Thomas County Historical Society and Museum

Join the Georgia Historical Society on Sunday, February 5, for the Georgia History Festival’s Super Museum Sunday! In the days leading up to the event, GHS will shine a light on participating Super Museum Sunday sites in anticipation for this popular annual event. Today we shine a light on the Thomas County Historical Society and Museum.

The Thomas County Historical Society was formed in 1952 and opened the Thomas County Museum of History within the Flowers-Roberts House in 1972.  Since 1972, the Museum’s collections have grown to include more than 500,000 artifacts and archival materials and eight historic structures. The Society, in partnership with the state of Georgia, also operates the historic Lapham-Patterson House. Guests visiting the Thomas County Museum of History can choose between Guided and Self-Guided tours of the property. Visit the Thomas County Historical Society and Museum on Sunday, February 5, from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. as part of your Super Museum Sunday experience.
