The Magnolia Grove is a historic mansion in Greensboro, Alabama. It was built in 1840 for Isaac Croom and wife, Sara Pearson Croom. It got its name after its location which is in the grove of Southern magnolias.

The Magnolia Grove became the Croom family house after its completion. It provided a comfortable dwelling for the quite prominent family, with Isaac Croom being a plantation owner and a lawyer, as well as one of the founders of the University of the South at Sewanee. Sarah Pearson Croom, on the other hand, was sister to the North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Richmond Mumford Pearson. After the Crooms? deaths, the house was passed on to Sarah?s niece and it continued to house influential people.

Today, the Magnolia Grove functions as a historic house museum under the ownership and management of the Alabama Historical Commission.
