The Historic Magnolia House

During America’s period of segregation, the Magnolia House Motel accommodated traveling African Americans who were not allowed to share the same facilities as Caucasians. The property was recognized as a highly recommended place to stay in six editions of The Green Book. The Magnolia House hosted many famous guests over the years including Ray Charles, Jackie Robinson, Ike and Tina Turner, Louis Armstrong, James Brown, and James Baldwin. Today, the Magnolia House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of very few Green Book sites to continue to operate within their historic context. The property has also been inducted into the Historic Hotels of America and is the only Green Book Hotel on the National Listing. Events and dining happen regularly, and boutique hotel rooms available. Call for availability; groups welcome. 442 Gorrell St. 336-617-3382.
