McFaddin-Ward House to host October community picnic and neighborhood tour

The McFaddin-Ward House Museum invites the public for their next community picnic event, which will take place on Thursday, October 17, 2013 from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m.

Picnickers are invited to dine al fresco on the museum grounds and enjoy the sounds of "The Community Quartet," a local jazz ensemble. The event is free and open to everyone.

Free first-floor tours of the museum will be offered, and information on the "Our Town" project will be available for those interested in touring what would have been the McFaddins' neighborhood to learn about the businesses and homes in the area--both old and new.

For more information on the event, contact the museum at (409) 832-1906.
