Mrs. Marcus CogbillBuilt 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. It was originally part of a large land grant to John Worsham in 1691. Here also were a tavern and gristmill in addition to the residence and its dependencies.  The families who have called Magnolia Grange home -- the Winfrees, and later the DuVals and the Cogbills (Mrs. Emily Cogbill -see picture insert) -- all have made important contributions to life in Chesterfield County and the Commonwealth of Virginia..
