Property History
This beautiful property is an Italianate townhouse started in 1854 and completed in 1862 by Jebez Fellows, a local merchant, who owned a clothing store in Downtown Mobile. The fifteen room home is noted for its soaring twin arched windows and double leafed carved entry doors.

It rests majestically on four acres, adorned by magnolia and oak trees. Two magnificent oak trees, thought to be 500 years old, anchor the home and are festooned with Spanish Moss and Resurrection Fern.

The second story facade contains Palladian windows that overlook a complex front porch, supported by colonettes made from single pine trees that are milled with square corners and adorned with carved capitals.

The original kitchen behind the main house was converted to a carriage house which held a series of horse drawn carriages.

In 1933, the home was purchased and restored by Dr. Toxey Haas and Mrs. Maurine Haas, referring to it as The Magnolias. Featured by Mobile Bay Magazine as one of Mobile’s Designing Women, Mrs. Haas was seen as a pioneer for the beauty of the old, and used the property for both a family home and business establishment. Eighteenth-century and museum quality furniture pieces were center stage throughout the home, showcasing her skills over the decades, including those learned in courses at Colonial Williamsburg. By the 1980’s, the home could be referred to as one of the city’s house museums.

The home was later purchased and operated as an event space known as Magnolia Manor. For years, the home and grounds would be the warm, loving backdrop for countless weddings, celebrations, and other events.
