PAXTON HISTORY

The Paxton house was built in 1884 by James W. Paxton of Wheeling, West Virginia. He retired from Wm. Paxton & Son, his family’s wholesale grocery business at the young age of 33 and became the president of the North Western Bank of Virginia.

Like many northerners of his time, Mr. Paxton retreated from cold northern winters to his residence in Thomasville. An article in the New England Journal of Medicine was published, claiming that the pine-resin air in Thomasville was recuperative. Thomasville became the “Winter Resort of the South”.
