History of Magnolia
1840 was an excellent year for Magnolia, as it expanded its southern border to gain more land.
The area was called Mink's Prairie for many years during its inception. This was after a settler in the area who shared the name.
The area of modern Magnolia was first called by this name in the late 1800s because of the magnolia trees that dot the area.
Magnolia gained prosperity and increased development in the early 1900s. During this period, there were numerous general stores, grist mills, a railroad and a number of other features and amenities.
Magnolia was a stop on the route of the International-Great Northern Railroad, helping to increase the population of the community.
The city was officially incorporated in 1968.
Magnolia's mantra is "A Community of Unity."
