From the minute you pull up curbside this place pulls you in. The architecture is magnificent. The surrounding grounds perfectly groomed. I could spend hours going through the rooms marveling at all of the details. Add to this the added bonus of being able to rent this jewel for private events. I was very fortunate to have recently coordinated a wedding at the mansion ( I own Magical Moments Event Planning and Coordinating). Laura, Lana and staff are over the top sweet hearts.

Presently, two Mediterranean cypress trees stand behind the columns, which contribute to the illusion of the original flagpoles' height and location

When you pass through Modesto, make sure that you look up at the arch that reads Water Wealth Contentment Health. If you look down when you are in this area, you will see lots of people that need water, are not wealthy, don't look very contented, and don't look very healthy. There is a big problem in Modesto with the homeless. They go from one free meal to the next and to the shelters in town.

If you have an interest in WWII, flying, or local aviation history this small museum is something to see. The museum features numerous displays with artifacts from local military veterans. The number and types of different memorabilia is really impressive. The gentleman who runs the museum is the son of one of the WWII pilots who are honored. The hangar also has numerous mannequins dressed in vintage military gear. The hangar also houses four planes.
