Come for this opportunity to tour the house for free and have one of our Junior Interpreters as your guide!
The McFaddin-Ward House Junior Interpreter Program was founded in 1996 as a way to encourage teenagers to be part of a history museum. Participants must be between 13 and 18 years of age to be considered for the program. Junior Interpreters (JIs) learn the history and architecture of the main house and carriage house and how to interpret those structures and the people who lived and work there.
JIs are a vital part of our volunteer interpreter corps. They give tours to the public on eight to ten Saturdays each year. Junior interpreters also assist with afterschool programs for children, large public events, and many other museum activities.
Tours are offered:
10 a.m. until 12 p.m.
1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Remember, it’s always best to make a tour reservation, as our tour accommodates only small groups at a time.
Call (409) 832-2134 for more details and to schedule a tour.
We’ll see you there!
