Kearney Mansion Museum

Kearney Mansion was home to one of California’s premier agribusiness pioneers, M. Theo Kearney. His legacy includes the establishment of the Central Valley’s colony farm system and the bequest of his Fruit Vale Estate to the University of California for agricultural research purposes. When visitors tour the Mansion they will learn more about this extraordinary man, his home, and his role in organizing the first raisin grower co-operative – the predecessor to what is now Sun Maid.
The home of M. Theo Kearney was constructed between 1900 and 1903 in the center of his 5,000-acre Fruit Vale Estate, seven miles west of Fresno, California. Today the historic site museum exhibits 70 percent of the original furnishings, including European wallpapers and art nouveau light fixtures. Since 1962, the Fresno City and County Historical Society has administered the structure as a museum offering tours to the public, special groups and schools.
