Built in 1853, the Magnolia is an antebellum home in Bennettsville, South Carolina. Also known as the Johnson-Kinney House, the structure is noted for being a fine example of a late antebellum, neoclassical, Greek revival frame house in the rural South.

The Magnolia was constructed for William Dalrymple Johnson, a local lawyer. Johnson is quite a prominent figure at the time, being a one of the three signer of the South Carolina Ordinance of Secession from the Marlboro County.

He was also the last Chancellor of the Equity Courts of South Carolina before it was abolished.

The Magnolia was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in March 1973, along with the barn and old slave quarters that stand behind the main house.
