One of the most beautiful historical landmarks in Modesto is the McHenry Mansion. Robert McHenry, a local rancher and banker, built the house by hand. The Italianate Victorian was built in 1882-83 in an area east of downtown that once contained many other grand houses. Today the McHenry Mansion is open for tours. Tours are free and tour guides are available. Across the street from the mansion is the McHenry Museum which features information about Modesto's history. Another landmark steeped in the town's history is the State Theatre of Modesto. Originally opened in 1934, the building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The theatre was built as a movie house but over the years has been converted to a concert hall and community arts center.1

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Modesto, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Modesto may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Modesto public health department.
