Beaumont's McFaddin-Ward House Restoration

Restoration Begins on Columns

at McFaddin-Ward House

June 23, 2008
By Scott Lawrence

"Work has begun to restore the four columns in front of the McFaddin Ward house.
The tops of the columns will be stripped of paint and used as a cast model for the exact replicas of the originals.
On Monday, workers boxed two of the 150 pound pieces for shipment to Oak Grove Restoration Company in Maryland.
The 100-year-old, 22-foot columns are iconic to the 1906-era McFaddin-Ward House and their slow deterioration necessitated the four-month refurbishing project."
