The McHenry Mansion is a beautiful place with an interesting past. The tour guide was excellent and very informative, as she explained the details of the mansion's beautiful interior and exterior, as well as its history. This place is one of very few historical gems remaining in the Modesto area.

Amazing piece of local history! Just took my third grade students on a field trip tour. So much to see inside the mansion! Tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and so nice! Great for a guided tour or just to wander around and look through at your own pace. Beautiful place to visit!

We had a fire in Dec of 2011 and while the Mansion was open at times during the renovation it fully opened in April of 2013. It is amazing...you must see the home and the decor to believe it! It...

A beautifully restored Victorian Mansion on the edge of down-town Modesto. It is a perfect spot for your special event. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there a few years ago, and our out-of-town guests were totally impressed with the home.
