  • The tour was great, but he reason I can’t give it a five star is because of the following reasons: (1) Certain areas of the house are restricted and we cannot go in them. Therefore, there were questio...  more »

  • Excellent example of turn off the 20th century architecture. Well curated museum shows life as it was lived by the wealthy family who owned it. Five dollar admission is a great deal. Free parking. Reservations needed for tour. No handicapped access.
  • We stopped through for the Christmas open house. It was a splendid evening -- starting for us with the four-part acapella choir and then a tour through the McFaddin-Ward House. The Christmas lights on the front of the house and along the spacious porch would have made my night. Tour inside the house was well organized with very knowledgeable docent who did a great job of moving the visitors through. The somberness of the house at night was a surprise for me -- but electricity was a new thing back when this house was built. The evening finished with dulcimer concert back in the greeting house. If you love old splendid houses, you will not want to miss this one. The sites and the history will capture your imagination.
  • The McFadden mansion was beautiful. It shared some history on the settlement of Beaumont and the surrounding area.
  • Photos were not allowed. I loved the house that smacked of old money you get a behind the scene look of how oil millionaires lived in the 30s and the 40s the tour guide was very informative It's worth 5 bucks any time
  • Definitely a must-see while in Beaumont! Ive been on numerous tours and still learn something new every time!
