The McFaddin-Ward House will host its 12th-annual Christmas Photo Op, Dec. 4, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

“We love to show off our house and we are very proud of it,” Karen Chapman, public relations coordinator for the McFaddin-Ward House, said. “We will have the staircase all decked out with beautiful poinsettias to give it that holiday feel.

“This is just one of many events that give our guests the opportunity to enjoy our history and get the feeling of how it was to live in Beaumont during this time period.”

Children of any age are allowed in the museum for the pictures. Families must be ready for the picture upon arrival.

Guests should bring their own camera and are allowed to take two photos on the staircase. Volunteer John Ayers will take the photos. Families must sign in at the McFaddin-Ward Visitors Center and receive a number.

“We saw around 75-80 families last year and are looking forward to seeing more,” Chapman said.

After the pictures, guests are encouraged to walk the grounds and visit the carriage house.
