I sometimes picture my farm as a battlefield with troops of people struggling with nature in a hundred-year war.

Germans, Italians, Chinese and Japanese, Armenians, Filipinos, and Mexicans---their voices have sounded over this farm, their families have walked these rows . . .

Kearney Mansion Museum Public Tours

KEARNEY MANSION MUSEUM PUBLIC TOURS:

Bring your family and friends to the Kearney Historic Site for a guided tour that provides a glimpse of the San Joaquin Valley's agricultural beginnings through the life and times of M. Theo Kearney - a California ag pioneer who came to be known as the Raisin King.   Tour the turn-of-the-century ranch manager's residence (known as the Superintendent’s Lodge) that was part of the ranch headquarters of Kearney’s Fruit Vale Estate. Experience the grounds of Kearney's 1890s landscape  - now a public park, perfect for a family picnic or leisurely walk.  The hour-long tour of the Superintendent’s Lodge includes a visit to the Museum Store.
