“Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

I visited Kearney Mansion many years ago while I was attending Clovis HS Interior Decorating 101 on a field-trip. The architecure had an intriguing characteristic suited for Mrs. Kearney.

“Must See!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

I loved touring the Kearney Mansion, which was actually the Manager's house for the working farm there. Mr. Kearney was going to build a castle there on the now Kearney Park grounds but died before he got a chance to start. But the plans are there at the house and drawings too. If you llike looking at old house and furniture to see how people once llived, you will really like this tour. Oh, it's only $5 per adult. Can't beat that price.

“An interesting spot, pretty; surprisingly 'cool' history with a dreamy element of what might have been”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

We enjoyed our tour here a lot; great history lesson, small, intimate tour group. It would have been nice to see the larger mansion/castle built and the owner's dream fulfilled. An excellent way to spend a few hours in Fresno. The admission price when we visited in 2010 or 2011 was only $5, with a two-for-one discount available from a citywide coupon book or online nationwide coupon service.

“A Little Bit of Old Fresno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

This home is a true landmark in Fresno...it has been very well restored and maintained. It is supposed to be haunted...and I have to tell you that I can feel "something" when ever I am there. Great place to visit.
