The tradition of Magnolia House began in
1923, when the stately home was designed and built by Edward
Stein, local architect, banker, and designer of the Gillespie
County Courthouse, located in downtown Fredericksburg. Each
piece of lumber was personally selected by Mr. Stein, making
Magnolia House one of the most carefully constructed houses in
this historic area.
Today, Magnolia House has been designated
by the Texas Historical Commission for The Recorded Texas
Restored in 1991, every element of Magnolia
House is in keeping with the grand interior and comfortable
family lifestyle of the original living quarters. Guests are
invited to relax on the patio, which surrounds the Koi pond
and waterfall, or on the wicker-furnished porches. The kitchen
has original antique glass cabinets, a working cistern in the
butler's pantry, and built-in iceboxes with wooden doors.
Thoughtful amenities such as fresh flowers, home-baked snacks,
and complimentary beverages add to guests' pleasure.
The Magnolia House staff will be happy to
