DAR plans for annual Christmas tea

THOMASVILLE — Thomasville Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution members are excited about preparing for their annual DAR Christmas Tea.

The tea will be held this year in the lovely home of Kelly and Mike Grimsley located at 1105 Gordon Ave.

There have been several changes of ownership since 1928, according to records found at the Thomas County Museum of History.

During 1928, the house was identified as a small, wood, one-story house. In 1944, the house was owned by Mrs. Ella S. Watson.

In 1952, Dr. John H. Cone's name was listed. In 1983, the house was listed as vacant. In 2003, the Grimsley's bought the house from Mary Golden.

The Grimsley's remodeled the entire house from several ideas found in the book, “The Louisiana Houses of A. Hays Town”, text by Cyril E. Vetter and Photography by Philip Gould.

The cost for the DAR Christmas Tea is $10. This money will be used for scholarships presented by the Thomasville Chapter NSDAR to local students at graduation.

Tickets may be purchased from any DAR member or at the door.

The annual event will be from 3 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 4. The house will be beautifully decorated for Christmas, said DAR  officials.
