Magnolia Grove

Magnolia Grove

Greensboro

Nationally significant as the boyhood home of Spanish-American War hero and U.S. Congressman Richmond Pearson Hobson, Magnolia Grove is a Southern archetype of what many tourists expect to see in the Deep South. As Hobson's house, however, it presents a more fully-rounded interpretation of our complex regional history. In addition to his military fame, he was a Progressive-era politician who championed women's rights and civil rights, as well as a national leader in the fight against alcohol and drug abuse. Magnificent magnolia trees and a beautiful boxwood garden surround the home. The mansion is filled with original family furniture and the walls are lined with portraits of the Croom and Hobson families. The site includes a detached kitchen and a slave house. Magnolia Grove is a historic house museum located on 15 acres at the west end of Greensboro's historic district. The Greek Revival home was built around 1840 by Colonel Isaac Croom. Magnolia Grove is a historic property of the Alabama Historical Commission - http://ahc.alabama.gov/ The Historic Magnolia Grove Foundation operates the site.
