The Magnolia Mansion was built in 1900 for the Stockton State Hospital for a cost of $5,800. The Magnolia Mansion has served as the residence for numerous superintendents and their families. It was partially restored by Grupe Commercial Company in 2004.
This 16 room home is an excellent example of a Georgian Neoclassical Revival re Beaux Arts architecture.
The State Hospital was established in 1853 as the first publicly supported facility for the mentally ill in the west.
At full operation in 1956, the 102 acre facility had 53 buildings, over 1,000 employees serving over 4,800 patients.
In the future, the Magnolia Mansion will be restored as a glorious facility to hold special events. For more information or to learn more about supporting these efforts please call (209) 473-6168.
