The purpose of the First Mayor's House is to promote a better appreciation of life in early Salinas and provide educational opportunities for students, teachers and schools.

Our Story

The First Mayor’s House is an educational nonprofit in Salinas, California, consisting of the restored home of Isaac Julian Harvey, the garden, and Learning Center. The home has been completely restored to the 1870s; the family documents, photographs, clothes and furniture have been preserved, giving us a rare glimpse of early community life. Today, the First Mayor’s House has been relocated to the new Inter-modal Transportation Center, where it serves as an adjunct to local schools, telling the story of all immigrants to the Salinas Valley.
