Preserving the Past to Endow the Future

You have arrived at the new home of the historic Jack Thomas House on-line. This site is dedicated to Jack Thomas and the history of the house in Leitchfield that he built. We also now have a separate site devoted to the GRAYSON COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY - Please take a look.

As you know, the Jack Thomas House is now over 200 years old. Unfortunately, Jack is showing his age. We are in a constant state of renovation. Cracks in plaster, peeling paint, rotting wood, crumbling bricks, drips and seeps... they all rear their ugly heads in an old house. We just had the roof replaced and the bricks tuck-pointed, but now the windows need scraping, painting, and glazing. All of this costs money. If you or someone you know is willing to donate their time toward the cause, we are willing to give back. 25 service hours gets you a lifetime membership to the Grayson County Historical Society and all it entails! Interested parties should call Mary at the house for more information.
If you haven't visited the Jack Thomas House already, the house is a museum and research library for Grayson County. The library contains over 150 family histories and over 500 volumes relating to Grayson county. Both are open to the public at no charge from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm cst, Tuesday through Friday. Please come by and see what we have to offer.
