"Own"a piece of history by donating to the Revive Magnolia Grange Campaign:  Today, Magnolia Grange is the only historic home open to the public in Chesterfield County, depicting early 19th century life. The site is also used to entertaining visiting dignitaries from other cities and countries, hosting official county ceremonies as well as Society functions and potentially to allow the public to rent the space for private special events.  This beautiful mansion sits on a tract of land across from the 1917 Courthouse in Chesterfield County.  It is in need of repairs both outside and in and if needs restoration now.  Domations are needed.  Please help us maintain this historic structure and donate generously.

Built in 1822 by William Winfree, Magnolia Grange is a handsome Federal-style plantation house named after the circle of magnolia trees that once graced its front lawn. It was originally part of a large land grant to John Worsham in 1691. Here also were a tavern and gristmill in addition to the residence and its dependencies.  The families who have called Magnolia Grange home -- the Winfrees, and later the DuVals and the Cogbills all have made important contributions to life in Chesterfield County and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
