A must-see landmark on your Modesto visit!

A wonderful landmark in Modesto! The docents are very knowledgeable and pleasant. The home is beautiful. The basement is a venue for local events.

Ok, I don't remember all the historical facts but I looked out one of the windows and imagined what Modesto may have looked like when the McHenry Mansion was first built?

it was a fun tour of an historic mansion.....I went with my daughter - in law. It was a fun bonding experience for us and we went back a few weeks later with my son so he could experience the tour worth every penny.

Nice look at old time Modesto /Central Valley. Not sure I would make a special trip, but if you are in the area it is worth a look.

I had never been to the Mansion, so when we saw it open at Christmas we went for a tour. Enjoyed ourselves very much. They had very knowledgable Docents. You need to visit.

The mansion was rescued from demolition in 1978 by the late Julio Gallo who turned it over to the City of Modesto for restoration, The community responded and the City now has a wonderful replica of what was a grand house fully furnished with period pieces; some from the McHenry family. It should not be missed.

Great way to dive into local history. Lots of artifacts. Just wish there was more. Perhaps someone with stories to tell about the displays.
