About Magnolia Grange
A Federal-style plantation house built in 1822 by William Winfree, Magnolia Grange is a handsome federal-style plantation house named after the circle of magnolia trees that once graced its front lawn.  Located on the original property were a tavern and gristmill in addition to the residence and its outbuildings.

Architecture & Restoration

Noted for its distinctive architecture, Magnolia Grange contains elaborate ceiling medallions and sophisticated carving on mantels, doorways and window enframements. Careful paint restoration has been executed through wood graining and marbling. Scenic wallpaper by Zuber and carpeting of the period combine with authentic furnishings to return the house to the 1820s.
