COMPLIMENTARY, COME SEE US!

Magnolia Grange, is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The home was built in 1822 by William Winfree. It is a Federal-style plantation house named after the 

circle of magnolias that once graced its front lawn. The land was originally part of a large land grant 

John Worsham in 1691. On the property also once stood a tavern and grist mill in addition to the

residence and its dependencies. Magnolia Grange contains elaborate ceiling medallions and sophisticated carvings on mantels, doorways, and window enframements. Careful paint restoration has been

executed through wood graining and marbleizing. Scenic wallpaper by Zuber and carpeting of the period combine with authentic furnishings returns the house to its original grandeur. Magnolia Grange welcomes visitors to an interpretation of life in a county mansion of the early 19th century.
