The McFaddin-Ward House was built in 1905-1906 in the striking and 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.
The purpose of the McFaddin-Ward House Museum is to preserve and interpret the McFaddin-Ward House (MWH), its collections, and the history of the family associated with it; to interpret the history of Southeast Texas, including its architecture, material and aesthetic culture, agricultural and business interests, especially as they relate to the house, its collection, and the family, through tours, educational programs, publications, and exhibits; and to cooperate with community groups involved with the promotion of historical and cultural activities, tourism, and education.
