Overview
This tour is unique because the Kearney Mansion is about 70 percent original from when it was first commissioned in 1903 by Martin Theodore Kearney. This tour is not just about Kearney, but it highlights the structure of the mansion, the stories of the families that worked and lived on the Fruit Vale Estate (Kearney Park) and you can enjoy the scenic view of the grounds. The mansion and gallery is located inside of Kearney Park which is filled with palm trees. The park features a lovely olive grove path, disc golf course, and the historic Tea House, Ice House, Carriage House and Bell Tower that is a part of the mansion.

Kearney was a agricultural Barron who lived at the Mansion. His drive way was the Kearney. Blvd. one must drive 5-7 miles West of downtown to visit......Kearney Park is Fresno’s oldest community park.

I was totally disappointed because the inside is not to be visited : it's an office. One nice picture and that's it!

This home was built as temporary living quarters for one of the Valley's largest raisin farmers. The Civil War reenactment every fall is a must see.

We just love this step back into time at the Mansion. We go about every other year. Every time we go we learn something new. We also notice things we didn't before. My husband 's great grandpa used to work for Mr. Kearney. We were also married there in August of 1983. We were the second couple to ever be married there. It was a lovely cool morning and it rained the night before, which made everything feel extra special being married there. We never grow tired of the Mansion. I think it would be so interesting to any one or any family with children 5 and up. Bring cash for entry fee. Small fare to take a tour.

Beautiful home, however, the tour was too short and the guide was speaking too fast trying to squeeze all the information in the allotted time. We left feeling confused and incomplete.
