Kearney Mansion Museum

Description

Located in the center of Fresno's expansive 230-acre Kearney Park, visitors to the mansion come as much to see the park itself as the grounds and buildings of this historic agricultural site. Guided tours and access inside are available only on weekend afternoons. Once known as the Fruit Vale Estate, it is a tribute to the man who helped develop colony-farming and produce-growing in the county, M. Theo Kearney, the "Raisin King of Fresno." Kearney envisioned his park to be the breathtaking backdrop for a grandiose castle-style home. Sadly, he died before the foundation could even be completed. What remains is the superintendent's lodge (the mansion), the carriage house, the servants quarters, the ice house, and the oil house. Thanks to years of restoration, many of these areas appear as they did around the turn of the 20th century. Note that grounds are occasionally closed for private events, so be sure to call ahead.
