Historic Downtown Building Restoration Programs
Façade Grant Program
The purpose of the Façade Grant program is to provide business and non-residential property owners an economic incentive to renovate the exterior façades of the building in the Downtown Historic District. The program encourages good design projects, which complement the unique historic character of the building while also introducing compatible new design.
Any owner or tenant of a building located within Thomasville's Downtown Historic District is eligible. Owners and tenants may request Façade Grants separately; however, only one grant may be awarded per property.
Eligible grant fund amounts are 50% of façade-related costs up to a maximum of $5,000. Some owners/businesses who have benefitted from this program include: Chair City Restaurant & Catering, Sebastian Gallery (Left Lane Productions), Monkeez Brew, P&G Antiques, and most recently The Coffee Depot.
Historic Building Restoration Project
Numerous buildings in the Historic Downtown Thomasville district require attention. The availability of these buildings and the cooperation of their owners leaves this endeavor unpredictable. PACE has come full circle and the group’s patience and persistence was rewarded in 2014 with the first buildings donated by the late Bob Callicutt, an owner they had first approached over 20 years ago. The completed salvaging of the buildings on 9 Salem Street and 6 Main Street has profoundly contributed to the recent spirit of restoration, renovation and creative businesses popping up in the last few years. PACE will continue to engage in vigorous fundraising for more restoration projects.
Join us for our Farm to Table Event Sunday, July 15, 2018 at 401 West Main St in the TFI Showroom. All proceeds will go towards our Downtown Revitalization initiatives.
