The Wagner House is a spectacular Queen Anne Victorian home built in about 1890 by Daniel R. Wagner (1840-1915), a local businessman who helped found Water Valley’s cotton factory and later opened a store on Main Street which still bears his name.  The Wagner family remained one of the most famous families in Water Valley for many years, and several generations of Wagners lived in this house.

In 2008 the house left the Wagner family after five generations and was purchased by Karen and Richard Waring, who began restorations on the house.

  1. Please take this picture down and put up the correct picture up if your going to get the history correct for Water Valley, Ms.


    1. I will take down the story of the murder (when I find the time), as I am now aware this was not the site of the murders. However, this is indeed the Wagner House, and I will not be taking the entire post down.
