As far as the eye can reach it extends, a heaving, swelling sea of green . . . . the whole landscape showed design, like man's nobelist sculptures. How wonderful the power of its beauty! Gazing awestricken, I might have left everything for it.

~ John Muir, 1867

Programs & Events


Centennial Gala

You are invited to celebrate 100 years of the Fresno Historical Society in the finest tradition of Jay Gatsby.  At our Centennial Gala, the landmark Kearney Mansion and grounds will be transformed into the lush and splendid venue that is a cultural touchstone of that bygone era… champagne and crystal, rhinestones and pearls and plumage, whimsy and revelry, lively dancing from shimmy to burlesque, astonishing high-wire entertainments and magic, an array of epicurean delights, casino tables and a kaleidoscope of libations, a warm and welcoming historic home and veranda to investigate and, for those who wish to party like it’s 1919, a secret speakeasy.

Date: Saturday, April 6 - 7:30 pm - 11:45 pm.
