History

Robert McHenry (July 23, 1827 – June 24, 1890) who built the home at the expense of $10,000 in 1882-83, was a prominent local rancher and banker. The luxurious mansion was converted in apartments from 1923 to 1972.[2] The Gallo Brothers, Julio and Ernest, saved the house from demolition and donated it to the City of Modesto on April 14, 1976. The house has been restored to look like it did at the turn of the century. Admittance is free of charge and tour guides are present.[3]
