Magee Farm – Kushla, Alabama

McGee House.jpgMagee Farm – Kushla, Alabama

The Magee Farmhouse has been part of the Kushla community since it was built in 1848.  In all those years there have been four families that have lived within its walls.  The two story house was built by black slaves, as were the outbuildings.  It was the largest private residence for several miles once it was completed.  The skill of the slave builders was excellent as the house has stood with very little help or repair since it was constructed.

There was the main house, a commissary; post office, bath house and school room on the complex. The only buildings still in existence today are the main house and the schoolroom.  Each of these buildings have been turned into a living history and museum. 

The main house has a large front porch, with entrances to two bedrooms, one on either side of the front door.  One bedroom was used for guests or travelers and so there is no access to the main portion of the home.  The purpose in the design was to allow for someone not related to the family to receive shelter and a place to rest.  The other bedroom not only opens off the front porch but it also has entrance to the formal dining room.  The dining room is located to the right of the foyer, and opposite the parlor.  This room may have been used to entertain guests, perhaps with the nineteenth century equivalent of partypoker games, and to display any works of art owned by the family in residence. The parlor was designed so that it could be closed off with either curtains or sliding wooden doors.  The foyer opened onto both the front and the back porch.  The schoolroom is attached to the back porch and is now the museum.  The second floor of the house has two very spacious bedrooms with each having a fireplace.  The house has five fire places in total.

As was the tradition of the time, to keep the heat out of the main house, the cookhouse was located on the East side of the house.  It was attached to the back porch.  There was a covered walkway to the bath house, Commissary and Post Office.  The outhouses were located below the main house and behind the cookhouse so there was a walk when nature called.

Magee Creek flows below the farm site.  Jacob Magee dammed the creek to operate a grist mill.  There were other buildings added to the farm later, a barn, at least three smaller homes, two of which were for the married daughters of Jacob and Mary Magee.

The farm is the site of the Living History and Battle Reenactment in the spring and fall.  Contact them for more information on dates and times.

    It is indeed a shame that the Great State of Alabama has allowed this site to close. If I were able, I’d buy it and make it open to the public again. There are so many possibilities!
