The Fresno Historical Society is headquartered at the Kearney Historic Site. Our offices are located in the 1892 two-story Servants' Quarters - one of the five original structures remaining of the ranch town of M. Theo Kearney's Fruit Vale Estate. The turn-of-the-century buildings - Kearney Mansion Museum, Servants' Quarters, Carriage House, Ice House, and Oil House are situated on the 1890s estate grounds that were at the center of M. Theo Kearney's 5,000-acre Fruit Vale Estate.
The Servant’s Quarters’ building is located directly south of Kearney Mansion and shares a porch with the Mansion. Come to the east side of the Servant’s Quarters. Look for the gray awning and signage that reads “Fresno City & County Historical Society”.
