Completed in 1906, the McFaddin-Ward House stands as a testament to the Spindletop oil boom at the beginning of the last century. W.P.H. McFaddin was part owner of the land where the Lucas Gusher blew in which started the petroleum industry as we know it today. Shortly thereafter, he and his wife built their elegant home. The Beaux Arts/Colonial, with all its original furnishings, provides a glimpse of the lavish lifestyle of a family that lived there for more than 75 years.
