Magnolia Grove is a classic Greek revival house built circa 1840. Its architectural style is what many tourists expect to see in the Deep South. However, the house offers much more and presents our region's complex history.
Magnolia Grove was the boyhood home of Spanish-American War hero and U.S. Congressman Richmond Pearson Hobson.
The Alabama Historical Commission owns this historic site. The Historic Magnolia Grove Foundation is the support group in charge of operating the site.
Blue Star Museum: Magnolia Grove proudly offers free admission to active duty military personnel and their families between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
