  • A great location full of interesting Beaumont history. I highly recommend taking the docent led tour. I brought a group here for a day outing and the staff were very warm and welcoming. All were very knowledgeable and full of information. The McFaddin- Ward House was an incredible sight to behold, so many cool things to see and as you walk through you can imagine life in the early days of Beaumont's growth.
  • Went for rose bush cuttings. It was very informative Thank you and shout out to Felix. He shared a lot of valuable information for starting my roses.
