    • Newspaper, 04 APR 1915: "'New Magnolia Burned.'
      Pass Christian, Miss., April 3. Within two weeks Pass Christian suffered the loss of two of its largest and finest hotels. Yesterday at 11:35 o'clock, the New Magnolia was discovered on fire, and within a few, minutes the flames spread so rapidly that despite the combined efforts of many volunteer fire fighters who quickly assembled and the work of the engine, the building was a mass of charred ruins.

      The fire was discovered by Overton Pratt, of New Orleans, who, with some friends were riding by on Front street, when smoke was seen coming through the crevices of the wide slate roof. At the time a number of the guests were sitting on the front porch unaware that the top of the building was burning. Mr. Pratt gave the alarm and guests on the third floor were notified. These scarcely had time to get out with their effects.

      When assistance arrived the flames had enveloped the attic and were eating downward rapidly making It dangerous to venture to the third floor. Efforts were then directed to saving the furniture and personal effects of the guests on the lower floors, and much of the furnishings were removed but were damaged by smoke and water. Some of the guests lost most of their effect,, but all of the seventy-five or more in the building; escaped without injury.

      The New Magnolia was the second largest hostelry at the Pass, and one of the most popular on the coast. It was an attractive three-story building of about sixty rooms, and was thoroughly furnished and equipped with all appliances that go to make a modern hotel. It was built on the site formerly occupied by the famous Montgomery hotel, where the elite of New Orleans Orleans and Mississippi were wont to congregate before the war. The building after the close of hostilities was occupied as the college of the Christian Christian Brothers for a number of years. In 1876 the old Montgomery burned about time same time of day as the Magnolia.

      Twenty-six years ago Rev. Mr. Mayers, an Episcopal divine, erected on the site a building; in which he conducted the Pass Christian Young Ladies' Institute, which was patronized for a number of years by the daughter of many of the most prominent families of the south. This was purchased by Its present owner, J, M. McGlathery, who added to the original building and converted it into the beautiful New Magnolia.

      The loss is estimated at about $55,000 with partial insurance. As the grounds are ideal 'for a hotel and the success of Mr. McGlathery it has been entirely satisfactory it is expected that the Magnolia will be rebuilt.

      It is also stated that the Lynne Castle, destroyed here by fire two weeks ago, when a loss of nearly $90,000 was sustained, will be rebuilt.'"
      --"Jackson Daily News," 04 Apr 1915, p. 2.

    • Newspaper, 29 JUL 1916: "'LARGE BRICK HOTEL FOR PASS CHRISTIAN'
      Pass Christian Beacon.
      Contracts for all the work on the large brick hotel to be erected on the
      extensive grounds where stood the Magnolia Hotel, were signed this week
      by Mr. J. M. McGlathery, and the house is to be completed so as to open
      about the first of January next.

      All the work on this building has been let to home people. Messrs. Jhon [sic.]
      T. and A. S. McDonald have the brick work; Mr. F. P. Wittmann, the carpenter work, and Mr. A. B. Hayden, the plumbing. When Mr. McGlathery first decided to rebuild he planned to
      give all the work to men of this city so that home labor would reap the benefit
      of that portion of the cost of construction, and there is no doubt that the
      mechanics engaged are as competent as any that could be obtained to do the
      work.

      The new hotel is of attractive architectural design, and will accommodate
      a large number of guests. When a more detailed account of its measurements and furnishings are obtained we will give a full report.

      The early rebuilding of the Magnolia is good news to all our people, as this
      house possessed a wide-famed popularity, and its former friends and patrons
      in all parts of the United States will be pleased to learn that its early completion is an assured fact."
