Thomasville Plantation Trace

Thomasville is known for its well-preserved historic and vibrant downtown. In the Victorian era, wealthy northerners flocked to this southern town for the mild climate and the pine-scented air. Today, the historical fabric is very much alive in the architecture of the Victorian homes, downtown shops, and the brick-paved streets. Learn about history at one of the museums, tour Pebble Hill a beautiful sporting-plantation, walk through a nature preserve, or just enjoy a day shopping in the independently owned shops and boutiques, then stay for dinner at one of the many delicious restaurants that abound.
