Historic Landmark “The Magnolias”. The Magnolias is a Vicksburg landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. The location and architecture are significant. The site was once owned by the Vicks family for whom Vicksburg was named. It was subdivided in 1867 as Southmayed Survey. Twelve lots were laid out; eleven homes built. Of the houses constructed in the original Southmayed development, only two remain. The Magnolias is the lone survivor of Monroe Street. Hand-picked lumber was air dried on site before construction. Workmen regularly turned the timbers to prevent warping and discoloration. Materials and workmanship were reputedly the finest of the period. Square nails were used and walls were plastered over cypress lath. The house was lighted by gas. Some of the original fixtures remain. Cisterns supplied water, their imprint still shows. The exterior features the finest Vicksburg pierced columns, an architectural feature special to this area. The finely-crafted brackets, balustrades and friezes are significant. The floor-length windows are in arched, molded surrounds. Inside, woodwork is distinctive doors, baseboards, and moldings. Iron medallions are in the parlor and dining rooms, which are joined by massive pocket doors. The stairway has an elaborate hand-saved Newell and ascends straight to the second floor.
