As of Thursday, March 19, the Alabama Historical Commission will act on the recommendations of public health officials and Governor Ivey to implement a plan for social distancing in response to coronavirus and COVID-19. In the interest of public health and safety, the Alabama Historical Commission's main office and select historic sites have been closed to the public since March 16, and all events and programs are cancelled until April 30. The agency will reevaluate by that time. This closure includes Magnolia Grove. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you on another occasion.

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.
