The Thomas Center: Cultural Hub





Downtown Gainesville, FL


In 1972 when a rezoning request went before the city’s planning board to raze the hotel, the neighborhood residents began a resistance movement. The site was listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1973 and was purchased by the City of Gainesville in 1974. The original house was restored and designated as a cultural center.

This nearly grand old building is the setting for contemporary art exhibitions, multiple period rooms and numerous historical exhibits. Its meeting rooms and performance spaces have become sought-after venues for weddings, conferences, and social events.


The Thomas Center provides a versatile space which contributes to the cultural, civic and social life of Gainesville.


Please visit the Thomas Center Website for more details.


For my renters at Southern Comfort Rental Properties, you can walk to the Thomas Center from The Palms or from the Duckpond homes. If you're driving, you can park at the Thomas Center or park on the street adjacent. It's another great "thing to do in Gainesville."
