Magnolia Place is a historic home located near Morganton, Burke County, North Carolina. The original section was built about 1818, and is a two-story, five bay by two bay, brick structure in the Federal style. Attached at the rear is a one bay by two bay temple form Greek Revival style addition built about 1850. It features a long full-height porch. The addition was built by Clarke Moulton Avery, second child born to Isaac Thomas Avery, master of Swan Ponds.
