Senior Bus Trip to Beaumont 07:30 AM - 4:15 PM
Senior Bus Trip to Beaumont 9/21/2021 7:30 AM - 9/21/2021 4:15 PM

Join us on a bus trip to Beaumont as we visit the McFaddin-Ward House Historic House Museum. The McFaddin home was one of a number of grand residences built in town by local architect Henry Conrad Mauer in 1905-06. Mauer trained at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and incorporated local materials with the most advanced electrical, heating, and plumbing systems of the time. The home was initially built for Colonel W.C. Averill and his wife Di, the sister to W.P.H. McFaddin. After living in the house for several months, the Averills decided to trade houses with the McFaddins, who lived nearby. In early January 1907, the McFaddins moved in. When W.P.H. and Ida Caldwell McFaddin moved their young family, two sons and one daughter, into their house in 1907, Beaumont was still enjoying the economic effects of oil at nearby Spindletop in 1901. Having already accumulated considerable wealth from the cattle business, rice farming and milling, the family prospered even more after Spindletop, since Mr. McFaddin owned part interest in the land where oil was discovered. The house served as a beautiful backdrop for the frequent entertainments and elegant parties the McFaddin’s hosted. In 1919, the McFaddin’s daughter Mamie married Carroll Ward, and the couple moved into this house with her parents. They lived their entire lives there, making few changes to the house or it’s décor after 1950. The grounds also include the original carriage house added in 1907 and a beautiful garden. The home was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971, and is now a museum dedicated to the McFaddin family that inhabited it for 75 years. After visiting the museum we will enjoy lunch at the Crazy Cajun.
