Tyler and Heather Thomas purchased this vacant historic building in 2018 and spent three years restoring it. They transformed the Belcher Building (1899) into a boutique hotel called The Willis Park Hotel. This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The original details, like the 100-year-old stained glass and historic French doors, were carefully restored.
The hotel incorporates modern additions like skylights, a reading nook, a spiral staircase, and architectural details. The Thomases were dedicated to preserving the property’s history while creating a new destination in Bainbridge, Georgia.
