Magee is a rich tapestry, which has woven through the years with much love and hard work. The first settlers in the area were Arthur Mangum and Phil Magee.Both entered the area around 1820. Pioneers from Virginia and the Carolinas followed and in 1840 Willis Magee built a gristmill on Little Goodwater Creek, inside the present city limits. The community grew slowly and steadily and on February 25, 1900 was incorporated as a village. The little community of 685 in 1910 has grown into a progressive city of almost 5000 today.
