MUSEUM HISTORY

 McHenry Museum under construction

The McHenry Museum (the building) has a history going back to 1912. In 1906 Oramil McHenry* died and his will left $20,000 and interest in three city lots for the expressed purpose of constructing a public library in the Modesto. The city was unwilling to begin the library facility until the probate of Mr. McHenry's will was complete. By 1911 all the pieces began to fall into place.
