History of The Lesesne House

The Lesesne House, also referred to as the “Crown Jewel of Centre Street,” is one of the major points of interest in the historic district and has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since in 1973. Formal dining rooms and parlors showcase a collection of museum-caliber artwork and antiques, while a two-century-old Live Oak tree is the centerpiece of sunlit courtyards, manicured lawns, and an elegant carriage house. This 18th-century charm will host Dickens After Dark as the first exclusive party of its' kind.

Follow Alice in this whimsical theatrical performance that will have you begging for more!  Alice in a Christmas Wonderland produced by Jason Woods.
