    With all the changes for the worse we’ve seen in Modesto, I’m glad people are keeping the past alive. How cool would it be to walk around Modesto circa 1880-1920’s?

  5. I found the tour on the Modesto Mansion very interesting, I loved the amount of detail that is focused on every little piece of the home, truly making you feel as if you went back in time into the Victorian era of the United States of America.
