Meux Home Museum

Description

The Meux House, a beautiful Victorian home in Fresno, is like a time capsule to another era. Public tours led by docents in period attire are offered Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons. A nominal entry fee is required. Built in 1888, the house was occupied by Tennessee transplant Dr. Thomas Meux and his family until 1970. It joined the National Register of Historic Places five years later, and the home is also featured in the Guide of Historic Architecture. Comprised of 10 rooms, the home is decorated in accordance with 1890s tastes and sensibilities. Some of the photographs and furnishings, such as the doctor's rocker in the library and an old-fashioned telephone, are actual Meux family heirlooms. Special events such as quilt exhibits and Mother's Day and Christmas teas are held here throughout the year.
