THOMASVILLE —  Dr. William Warren Rogers, the leading historian of Thomas County, will be honored at a book signing and reception celebrating the publication of his recently released book, Victorian Thomasville, on Sunday from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. at the Lapham-Patterson House.

Rogers’ first book on the history of Thomas County, written for the Thomas County Historical Society, was published 50 years ago when he was a beginning history professor at Florida State University. His close relationship with the Historical Society continued throughout his distinguished career and produced three additional volumes.

Together, his books trace Thomas County history from its founding in 1825 through 1920. He is also the author of books on Pebble Hill and Foshalee plantations. 

Rogers’ new release from Sentry Press, which he co-founded 20 years ago, captures in a brief narrative and more than 50 historic images from the collections of the Historical Society, Thomasville’s golden era as a major resort.

Victorian Thomasville, as well as copies of several of the author’s earlier books, will be available for sale at this event. Rogers will also be glad to sign copies of previously purchased books, The public is cordially invited to attend and there is no charge.
