This beautiful Beaux Arts colonial mansion was built in 1906 by Texas oil and cattle pioneers, Wm. Perry and Ida Caldwell McFaddin. Designed by one of Beaumont's first educated architects William Conrad Mauer, it includes 12,500 square feet of space with sweeping porches, large white columns, fine furnishings and valuable antiques. The three-floor, elegant home is surrounded by spacious lawns and flower beds and rose gardens.
Daughter Mamie set up a museum foundation to preserve the family's history and heirlooms for future generations to enjoy. One of the few house museums in which the home’s original furnishings are intact and on display. See where Mrs. Ward placed her beautiful things. Check the website for special events and lectures. A highly-trained and devoted volunteer-docent will escort small groups through the house, adapting the tour to match the interests of the group.
