Protect Mallette Heights
Local historic districts maintain the livability and stability of historic neighborhoods. Mallette Heights, on Washington and Jefferson Streets, is one of Thomasville's earliest planned neighborhoods. Because of the Mallette Heights development, the land east of the district opened up, creating an opportunity for Thomasville's first public school, East Side (now the Center for the Arts), to open and encouraging the later development of Glenwood. One of the densest areas for historic homes, it retains much of its important historic integrity. It is a jewel of the community, and we think it is important to protect the district from encroaching insensitive development.
We support the proposed designation of our neighborhood as Thomasville's newest local historic district, Mallette Heights.
