Ruth Lang gave a tour of the Kearney Mansion Museum and spoke about the history of agriculture in Fresno County. Martin Theodore Kearney was an early contributor to the development of agriculture in both Fresno County and the state of California. Kearney was a proponent of the colony farming system, in which fencing and irrigation for all of the lots in the colony were provided cooperatively. He later established the California Raisin Growers Association, helping to stabilize the raisin market.
