Restored, revitalized and reborn - welcome to The Historic Magnolia House. Formerly  the Magnolia House Motel, this beautiful Victorian home was built in 1889 as a private residence, but was converted in 1949 for use as a motel to serve traveling African Americans who were not permitted to board in Greensboro’s finer, and segregated, hotels. During the 50s and 60s, the Magnolia House Motel accommodated such notable African Americans such as Ray Charles, James Brown, Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, Carter G. Woodson and many others.

Today, patrons can enjoy a glimpse of this rich history while enjoying dining at its best. In partnership with The Vine Catering, the Magnolia House is now The Historic Magnolia House, featuring The Vine Catering at The Magnolia House. This elegant venue is now open  weekly for meals-to-go, Sunday brunch, catering and special events.

Contact us today to plan your next event - and be sure to come visit us in early 2017, when The Historic Magnolia House expands to full bed and breakfast services!
