During America’s period of segregation, the Magnolia House Motel accommodated traveling African Americans who were not allowed to share the same eating and sleeping facilities as Caucasians. Today, the Historic Magnolia House hosts brunches and events.
Known as the New Garden Woods in the 1800s, this is felt as a sacred place. Located within the historically Quaker New Garden/Guilford College community, it encompasses old growth forest and at least one champion tree standing as a silent witness to Underground Railroad activities.
Trail to the champion tree is 0.3 mile one-way. It includes uneven surfaces with an accessible viewing platform and seating at the end.
