    Such a fun place to visit and see how the family lived when the mansion was the McHenry home. I really enjoy the Teas they have a few times a year. The mansion is beautiful during the Christmas season...  more »

    This is a nicely and accurately restored 130 year old mansion. It is very interesting to see the "comforts" that were in old houses and compare them to what we have today. The docents are very knowled...  more »

    The McHenry mansion is a remnant of Modesto's glory days. It is more beautiful inside than outside- and it is very beautiful on the outside. Guided tours are free, informative and are led by spectacularly nice tour guides. I only ding it 1 star because the tour was about twice as long as it needed to be and focused very little on the family itself- it was mostly focused on how the various artifacts came to be in the house.

    I've been going here since I was a kid. I love it so much. Docents are very knowledgeable.

    From the minute you pull up curbside this place pulls you in. The architecture is magnificent. The surrounding grounds perfectly groomed. I could spend hours going through the rooms marveling at all of the details. Add to this the added bonus of being able to rent this jewel for private events. I was very fortunate to have recently coordinated a wedding at the mansion ( I own Magical Moments Event Planning and Coordinating). Laura, Lana and staff are over the top sweet hearts. I would love to work with these ladies any day! And the room back drops are a photographers dream for wedding shots. I highly recommend McHenry Mansion for an afternoon sight seeing as well as a private event venue!
