The McFaddin-Ward House was built in 1905-1906 in the distinctive Beaux-Arts Colonial style. The building and its furnishings reflect the lifestyle of the prominent family which lived in the house for seventy-five years.
The museum features volunteer docent-led tours of the home, year-round events, a carriage house, and gardens.
In the spirit of fostering community responsibility and life-long learning, the mission of the McFaddin-Ward House is to engage its resources and exceptional collection for preservation and education, specifically:
- To maintain, protect, and conserve the McFaddin-Ward House so that it is enhanced and unimpaired for future generations; and
- To preserve, interpret and share the legacy of the McFaddin family, and their contributions to the economic, social, and cultural history of Beaumont and the Texas Gulf Coast.
The McFaddin-Ward House will be a continuing source of inspiration and education, known and sustained for its exhibitions, programs, and partnerships that encourage life-long learning, inspire an appreciation for the past, and encourage commitment for future civic engagement.
