McHenry Mansion is a charming Victorian home that's been well maintained and comes with an interesting history. We visited during the Christmas holiday so it was beautifully decorated. Modesto doesn't have much else in regards to historical landmarks so definitely put this on your list should you find yourself in the area.

A historical landmark. You can take a tour and learn about the people who once lived there. It's also available for rent for special occasions. There's also a Visitor Center / Gift Store located next to the mansion. Many unique items available!

The McHenry Mansion is a definite must-see when you are visiting Modesto. It is free to visit but you have to be accompanied by a Docent who will give you a guided tour. Our Docent Elizabeth was wonderful, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the family and building's history. The Mansion is beautiful, inside and out and the history of the... More

Absolutely an excellent stop in Modesto, just make sure that you don't set your GPS to McHenry House. The tours are free and the interior breathtaking. All is restored to the original state. Highly recommended. The gift shop actually sells very practical items, such as beautiful ceramic tea kettles, for a very reasonable price.

The docents were very informative. They tell you the history of the house and all the changes it has gone through over the years. The house is beautiful inside and out. I have gone there with my grandkids on a tour and attended a garden dinner. The house is appointed in period pieces right down to a mouse trap in... More
