Welcome to the Magnolia Historical Society's Official Website!


The Magnolia Historical Society manages and maintains the Historic Depot Complex, located on Melton Street next to the Magnolia Community Building -  in the heart of downtown Magnolia, Texas. 


The complex consists of:

  • The Magnolia Depot Museum,
  • A covered pavilion for community events,
  • The historic office (and barbershop) of the late Dr. Ware,
  • An antique sawmill, the Houston Area Blacksmith Association facility,
  • And a red caboose.

The pavilion and Magnolia Community Building are available for rental for weddings, family reunions, and other events. Please contact us if you are interested.


The Historical Society's members are all volunteers who lend their time and talents to preserving the rich history of the Magnolia area for generations to come.


Most of the historic items preserved at the Depot complex are generous donations from families who have lived in Magnolia. If you have historic photographs or other memorabilia from Magnolia you wish to have preserved, please contact us.
