  • 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!
  • Loved it. Great staff. Always nice to learn about history.
  • Loved the history of our towns historical place. So glad it was free.
