City of Magnolia Springs

Magnolia Springs has a rich history, having been settled and established by a land grant in 1800 and home to many post Civil War veteran families.  Tucked securely in the curves of the Magnolia River, this gorgeous town along the river’s edge with an abundance of natural springs is well-loved by those who live in Alabama.  In fact, the town’s name is a result of a tribute to those springs and the abundant magnolia trees found throughout Magnolia Springs. Natural beauty can be found throughout Magnolia Springs with giant oak trees and blooming camellia, azalea, wisteria, dogwood, and magnolia blossoms as well as by watching the water birds and other wildlife along the river banks.

An active community, Magnolia Springs is home to a Community Association, established over one hundred years ago, where people who live in Magnolia Springs meet monthly to celebrate food, fun, facts, and friendship.  Living in Magnolia Springs allows residents the advantages of small town life near a metropolis with Pensacola and Mobile less than an hour’s drive away.
