Magnolia (Columbia County) was incorporated in 1855 as the county seat. The next year, a log courthouse was replaced by a larger frame structure that served the county until the early twentieth century. In 1905, construction began on a new courthouse, shown here in the later stages of construction. The building was completed in 1906 and still remains in use today. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
