Owners  of the Magnolia Hotel,  Erin O. Wallace  and Jim Ghedi  purchased the nearly 200 yr. old property over a year ago.   Erin is known for her interest in all facets of history and is the author of  ,   “Haunted New Braunfels: A True Wild West Ghost Town”  She,   along with Jim  have  made the Magnolia their  personal historic project  with a tremendous amount of  interior and exterior changes.

The hotel was not only featured in last year’s Christmas Parade of Homes, but stands proudly as a prominent part of the  “True Women” tour of historic sites which former Seguinite,   Janice Woods Windle wrote about in her 1994 novel about family life, as it was, in the early days of Seguin .

The book was eventually produced into a miniseries made for TV.

Take a drive by  The Historic Magnolia when you are in downtown  Seguin,  it’s well worth the time.
