Description

The marker reads: "MAGNOLIA SPRINGS, ALABAMA -- (Continued from the other side) For more than 100 years, the Magnolia Springs Community Association, with monthly potlucks, kept people abreast of local events. The Community Hall erected in 1894 still provides a meeting place for residents. A volunteer fire department established in 1961 serves the safety needs of the community. It was housed in a small cinder block structure behind the historic Community Hall and adjacent to Saint Paul’s Chapel (erected in 1902). Today, the Magnolia Springs Volunteer Fire Department has its own modern facility on the former grounds of the old Magnolia Springs School (the school was erected in 1927 and destroyed by fire in 1985). By the turn of the 21st century, residents of the little unincorporated village moved into a new historical phase when the Town of Magnolia Springs was incorporated in 2006. Magnolia Springs, a successful blend of natives and transplants, continues to offer the warmth of the traditional southern hospitality and appeal of treasured historic heritage. ERECTED BY THE ALABAMA TOURISM DEPARTMENT AND THE TOWN OF MAGNOLIA SPRINGS JULY 2010". Top of the sign: Image of Alabama Great Seal.
