The Chesterfield Historical Society participates in a statewide promotion featuring many of Virginia’s prominent historic housess. Built in 1822 by William Winfree, Magnolia Grange is a handsome federal-style plantation house named after the circle of trees that once graced its front lawn. It was originally part of a large land grant to John Worsham in 1691. Here also were a tavern and a gristmill in addition to the residence and its dependencies. The families who have called Magnolia Grange home -- the Winfrees, and later the DuVals and the Cogbills -- all have made important contributions to life in Chesterfield County and Virginia.
