I assume it will be called Magnolia Park, but I don’t know that. An historic home once stood here, but it burned months back. More on that here.
There is a lot of work to be done to make this nice, but the city of Mineola is committed to getting it done. This space has real potential as an amphitheater and general park. The Magnolia trees on the site are very old and huge. A section of the tree closest to the house was scorched in the fire but, according to tree experts, it will live through the ordeal.
Special thanks to the Campos’s, the previous owners of the house whose generosity made this possble.
