The McFaddin-Ward China Collection
The McFaddin women adored china. Mamie McFaddin Ward and her mother Ida owned some thirty-six sets! Not all were dinnerware, however. They included breakfast, tea, and dessert sets too, and they happily used them all.
New exhibits featuring ceramics from the McFaddin-Ward House Collection are now on display at the Visitor Center.
The exhibits are of select Dresden and fine china and dinnerware. The pieces originate from factories in Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and the USA. This is a rare chance to see a large sample of plates all at once. The exhibit will be on display through Summer 2018.
