The Historic Thomas Center is pleased to announce it was selected as a 2019 winner of WeddingWire.com’s Couples’ Choice Award. This is the sixth consecutive year that the venue has been recognized. The WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards recognize the top five percent of wedding venues nationwide from the WeddingWire network that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, winners of the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards are determined by reviews that are posted by newlyweds. The client reviews that each venue receives are then judged in the areas of quality, quantity, recency of the wedding and consistency.

Contractors have finished replacing the decking on the bridge between wetland cells 1 and 2 at Sweetwater Wetlands Park. The original pine decking has been replaced by naturally rot-resistant hardwood. Once the protective oil that has been applied to the wood has been allowed to dry completely, the bridge will be reopened. All of the park’s trails will be open to visitors Thursday, Jan. 17. We appreciate everyone’s patience during this process, and are excited to welcome visitors to once again enjoy all that the park has to offer.
