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

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 also set as as apartments way back when. The grounds are beautiful and weddings can be held here. Docents give you all the information and tours. I... More

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.
