The McFaddin-Ward House to Offer Another Opportunity to Tour "Our Town"

"The Art of Community"
Picnic and Quilt Exhibit

Pack a picnic and a quilt and enjoy an evening of jazz by "The Community Quartet" on the museum grounds!

Enjoy an evening of music and fun at the McFaddin-Ward House Museum! Our picnic and quilt exhibit event is free and open to everyone. We will offer free tours of the museum and live music--just bring your picnic, a quilt or blanket, and sit back, relax, and enjoy!

The quilt exhibit will feature a selection of quilts from our museum collection, as well as from our docents and staff, showcasing the com
munity that the quilting art form creates and the history of the craft.

5 - 7 p.m.
Free and open to everyone!

This event will also kick off a week-long opportunity to tour "Our Town," what would have been the McFaddins' neighborhood, stretching from 1st to 11th streets, and Smart Street and IH-10.

Visit the “Our Town Research” tab to read some of the stories already shared with the museum.

See you there!
