More than 250 Odom Academy students descended
by the busloads on the McFaddin-Ward House this month. The middle schoolers were here for an annual visit and a Texas History lesson on the early 1900’s. The morning included a stage play about a day in the life of the McFaddins, tours of the house, an art lesson, and several docent-led demonstrations of the family kitchen, house chores, Mamie’s school room, and childhood games. Close to 30 docents and staff were on hand to host the event which covered a three-day period.
