Magnolia and Pike County

Magnolia is a town in Southwest Mississippi with a little over 2400 residents an almost 17% increase from 2000. Magnolia was settled in 1810 and incorporated in 1859. The town was named by Mary Sinnot, a local, after the many magnolia trees inside the town. There are still a lot of magnolias here. Magnolia has been the county seat of Pike County since 1872. Pike County was named after explorer Zebulon Pike.
