Surprised my Mama for her 70th birthday with a tour! The house is different, a little weird, a lot beautiful and extremely interesting! We loved it!

I hosted my little girls 4th birthday at The Lapham-Patterson House. The theme was an enchanted fairy garden party. The setting of the home and the space was absolutely perfect. Amelia was great to wo...rk with in the planning and arranging prior to the party. The home was such a beautiful place to host this very special celebration for my little girl! I highly recommend the Lapham-Patterson House to anyone looking to host an event. See More
