Speaker: John Gallardo
Chico's Stansbury House at W. 5th and Salem Streets is one of a handful of early Chico residential homes that remain today in nearly original form. Medical Doctor Oscar Stansbury arrived in Chico in 1875, and he would build the house in 1883 for his family. The Stansbury's owned the home until 1975, when the family donated 2/3 of the value of the house to the City of Chico. The Stansbury Home Preservation Association was established to maintain and exhibit the interior and grounds of the beautiful house as a museum. John Gallardo began his more than 45 years of contribution to the Preservation Association in 1975, and lived in the home for 20 years as caretaker. Come hear and see with projected imagery the full story of the house from John himself. A Chico History Museum tour of the home in the spring of 2023 is a possibility.
