Come see the McFaddin in a Whole New Light!
The McFaddin-Ward House invites the community to “come see the historic home in a whole new light” following the culmination of an extensive electrical upgrade project which has spanned more than nine months and has seen the complete conversion from the house’s original knob and tube wiring to a state-of-the-art commercial electrical system.
Free tours of the McFaddin-Ward House will resume today, Wednesday, Oct. 25, and visitors will enjoy an interpretation centered around a fall theme with some special Thanksgiving-themed items displayed from the collection, as well as some exciting new surprises, including the addition of LED lighting in every upper-cabinet doorway in the Butler’s Pantry and restoration of the Breakfast Room’s iconic bronze maiden-topped, alabaster fountain, which will be flowing for the first time in the museum’s history.
The McFaddin-Ward House offers free docent-led and self-guided audio tours. Museum hours are Wednesday – Saturday, 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. and 12:30-2:30 p.m. on Sunday. The museum encourages reservations, but walk-ins are always welcome. To make your reservation, call (409) 832-2134.
