  • A lovely venue with beautiful lush outdoor gardens featuring gigantic sprawling trees, well manicured lawns, elegant fountains, and quaint enclosed areas, including a small outdoor theatre with excellent acoustics. I haven't been inside the center proper. But, I've heard that it has a lot to offer as well, including performance spaces for rent.
  • Great place to book events. The kids and I love to hang out on the lawn and climb trees, do yoga. Great history and beautiful grounds.
  • Went to the Thomas Center for Jest Fest and had a great time. Free to the public and a wonderful event. Even saw a sword swallower.
  • It's a gorgeous piece of local history. My granddaughter loves it. The grounds are amazing.
  • The grounds are relaxing and tranquil. Good place to gain a historic perspective of the area culture.
