The John Jay French home is the oldest fully-restored home in Beaumont. Built in 1845, the home has the distinction of being one of the first two-story homes, one of the first made with milled lumber, and one of the first painted homes in the area.

The John Jay French Museum demonstrates the life of a prosperous Texas pioneer family from 1845-1865. The historic pioneer settlement, built by John Jay French, tanner and merchant, is furnished with antique furnishings, clothing, and pioneer household utensils from the period. Outbuildings on the grounds include a blacksmith shop, tannery, privy, and smokehouse.

In addition to our general museum services, we provide tours for 7th-grade students as a part of the Texas history curriculum; Camp Lookinback Summer Camp; an Easter egg hunt; Pumpkin Walk; Christmas Candlelight tour; and other miscellaneous events and services.
