The Colonel Green G. Mobley House, also known as The Magnolia, is a historic house in Gainesville, Sumter County, Alabama. The two-story wood-frame house was built for Colonel Green G. Mobley, a native of Fairfield County, South Carolina, and his wife Henrietta, a native of Vermont. The Greek Revival-style structure was completed circa 1845. Architectural historians consider it to be among West Alabama's most refined expressions of domestic Greek Revival architecture.
The house is centered on a 3.3-acre (1.3 ha) corner lot, surrounded by a high brick wall that is almost as old as the house itself. The front facade is five bays wide, with a monumental tetrastyle portico covering the central three bays. The bays are separated by boxed pilasters on the front. The portico is pedimented and utilizes the Ionic order. A denticulated cornice crowns the entablature around the entire structure. Exterior and interior trim conforms to published designs of Asher Benjamin and Minard Lafever, early proponents of the Greek Revival movement.
