The Mamie McFaddin Ward Heritage Foundation was created by Mrs. Ward in 1976 with the primary purpose of restoring and supporting the Mamie McFaddin-Ward House Historic House Museum which opened to the public on March 17, 1986. The home, carriage house, and gardens provide an oasis to those seeking beautiful architecture, exemplary taste, and local history. The McFaddin-Ward House Museum preserves and interprets the history of the home, the family, and Southeast Texas.
In addition, the Mamie McFaddin Ward Heritage Foundation makes discretionary grants to local charities through an annual application process. Due consideration of grant applications is given by the Co-Trustees of the McFaddin Ward Foundation and the Committee named in the Declaration of Trust.
