Truly a site to see. Not everybody lived the type of life shown, but a very good picture of a well known family

“Amazing home and history! Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

I toured the McFaddin Ward home in a very small your of just myself and a very nice and informative guide. I should have called for reservations but after the first tour was full, I came back for the second tour of the day and immediately began my personal tour. The home is amazing with all original artifacts and art objects. Learning the history of the family who lived there was fascinating. You get to tour all 3 floors and nothing is really roped off, which is great because you feel like you truly have stepped back in time when you explore the home. I appreciate that they do not allowe children under age 8 or bags in the home. The free lockers and reasonable tour price of $3 are great as well. If you love history and beautiful homes, stop here in Beaumont!
