Tourism and Historic Sites

 

Magnolia, Mississippi is a hidden jewel located on the I-55 corridor between Jackson, MS and New Orleans, LA. West of Magnolia is Vicksburg and Natchez, MS and Baton Rouge, LA, all in close proximity for day trips.

The city has over 50 historic homes and sites, including a Confederate Cemetery. There are two historic districts in the city, Southtown and the Myrtle Street Historic Districts. The district on Myrtle Street represents what a neighborhood looked like at the turn of the 20th century.

While here, be sure to visit our unique downtown shopping village. Shops are housed in charming renovated shotgun-style homes situated on Railroad Avenue between the historic Central House Hotel and the Magnolia Terrace Bed and Breakfast and across the street from the newly renovated Railroad Depot housing Magnolia City Hall and our historic Railroad Park.

 

Recreation

 

In addition, southwest Mississippi offers a wide variety of opportunities for recreation.  Whether you enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, golfing, tennis or water sports, the opportunities abound.

 

Visit Reid Memorial Park and enjoy the walking track that winds through the well kept wooded area or cook out and relax in the campground at the edge of town along the Tangipahoa River.

 

Percy Quin State Park is only a 5 mile drive from Magnolia.  The park has a beautiful lake for water sports, great fishing, campsites, cabins and Quail Hollow Golf Course.  If golf and tennis are high on your list, you may also want to check out Fernwood Country Club which is a stones throw from the Magnolia city limits north on Hwy 51.
