ABOUT US

The First Mayor’s House, also known as the Harvey-Baker House, was one of the first buildings constructed in the new town of Salinas City. The House was home to the Harvey-Baker family for over 100 years before being restored to the 1870s era and established as a non-profit corporation. Today it is the oldest building in Salinas, serving as a history, art and cultural center for the community. 

OUR MISSION

The First Mayor’s House, the front porch of Salinas, provides educational and cultural programs that showcase our history and the paths that have led us to the present. (Adopted June 2020)
