A wonderful tour. The tour lasted an hour and it took you through the entire home and the carriage house. The grounds are really lush and beautiful.

Beautiful Victorian home. The tour guide was very informative and answered all the question that we asked. Loved that Mrs. Ward left this home so that others can see into the past and how families lived. On the boys floor as you reach the top of the stairs there are a pair of roller skates, if you look at the... More

Our guide, a young 20 something girl, had really done her homework. I asked several specific questions and she knew every answer. The tour is all 3 floors of the home and the horse barn. There is a beautifully restored 69 Cadillac Fleetwood parked in the horse barn. The senior lady at the front desk was very courteous.

We drove by this huge Victorian house and I HAD to see it. A tour is only $3.00 and well worth it. EVERYTHING in the house is original except for some wallpaper on the upstairs landing which had asbestos in it. What really made it great is you get to tour the entire house. No, you don't walk in each... More

I've always been a history buff, but especially being a fan of American Horror Story (Season I), I haven taken more interest in... More

This house is fabulous. After seeing some of the Antebellum homes in Louisiana this beats them. Why? The difference is in the interior furnishings of the McFaddin-Ward home which are the originals and are of a better 'quality' if you like. The guides are very knowledgable and friendly. It is well worth a look at even though it is a... More
