Magnolia Manor - Highways 26 and 51

Built for John B. McDaniel several years after his arrival from South Carolina, this early colonial house was constructed bewteen 1854 and 1857 by Madison Griffin, a master bricklayer, designer, and builder. While the house was under construction, McDaniel made a trip to New Orleans and returned with two seedling magnolia trees, which were planted near the main entrance. One survived, providing the home with its name. Magnolia Manor was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
