CGCI Meetings


Convention 2017

The Jack House is a unique piece of California's elegant and colorful past which will transport visitors back to the Victorian era. The Jack family holds history with some of the most prominent players in the drama of Central California development. Active in ranching, politics, travel, banking and land development, the Jacks lived in this fine two-story Victorian house for over 90 years and much of the family's original furnishings, artwork, kitchen utensils, dishes and keepsakes are now on display for visitors.
