We live near here. I love that they have events throughout the year. My favorite is allowing families to take pictures on the grand staircase at Christmas time. I consider it a must see while your here.

Had the most informative and interesting tour we have ever had. Our docent Madilyn was so knowledgable on the McFaddin family history it was as if she had lived during that period. It was a nice way the spend a beautiful spring morning in Beaumont.

This is a beautiful home which was owned by the McFaddin family originally. Their daughter, Mamie McFaddin-Ward was the last of the family to live there. The family owned the land where the Spindletop oil well gusher was drilled.
