Notable History of Location

Magnolia Manor was used as a Headquarters for the Union Army by Generals Logan, McPherson,
Sherman and Grant during the Civil war and it is believed to be the home in which these four Generals
planed the battle of Shiloh.  Three generations of the Miller family lived in the house until the 1970's.
Charles Austin Miller, son of Judge Austin Miller, followed his father's footsteps to become a prominent
attorney and later the Secretary of State of Tennessee. One of C.A. Miller's daughters Lizzie Lea Miller
was also elected State Representative and the first women in the history of Tennessee to achieve this.
The house has since been owned by only two other families. It has operated
as a bed and breakfast since 1985 by Owner and Inn Keeper Elaine Cox.
Governors, Celebrities and even a Vice President have inquired about or
