Construction on the stately Beaux-Arts Classic-style building began in 1914 after the city received a $10,000 grant from the federal government for a post office. Through its 100-year history, the building at 135 North Broad has been the community’s post office, its public library, and home to several important community non-profit organizations. It served as office space for Thomasville Landmarks, the Downtown Thomasville Development Authority, and Main Street Thomasville through the years. Most recently, the building was home to the Thomasville Genealogical, History and Fine Art Museum as well as the South Georgia Community Foundation, the Thomasville Antiques Show Foundation and the bicycle unit of the Thomasville Police Department.(Submitted on January 22, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
