Members from the Thomasville Historic Preservation Commission will host a Christmas walk in historic uptown Thomasville from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21.

Tours will begin at the bandstand and will take participants past storefronts decorated for Christmas. Tour guides will point out the unique history behind many of the buildings along the tour.

The Thomasville Historic Preservation Commission is a local government agency working to promote and safeguard the historical and architectural heritage of the City through citizen education and the establishment of historic districts and landmarks.

“The goal of citizen education is to convey to our residents the importance of recognizing the historical heritage of our City as one of our most valued and vital assets,” said Commission member David Yemm.
