Magnolia House: Comfort and safety, even during the storms of winterGarden view of Magnolia House. When the famous playwright, Tennessee Williams came for drinks, dinner, and conversation in the 1970s, he clasped his hands, raised his eyes to heaven, and said, "This house reminds me of the antebellum South, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Blanche DuBois!
