General Information

Bidwell Mansion
Copyright: - California State Parks
Bidwell Mansion
Description - Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park was the home of pioneers General John and Annie Bidwell. The Bidwell wealth came from the California gold fields. General Bidwell was a social activist, congressman and a leading grower. The Mansion was the headquarters of Rancho Chico, once the most famous farm in the state. It is a three-story 26-room brick house built in the 1860s. The design is in the style of an Italian villa.

Recreation - The park features guided tours.

Climate - Climate in the Shasta-Cascade Region varies greatly with elevation. Higher elevations tend to have much cooler temperatures and higher precipitation. Summer weather is usually hot and dry with lower elevation temperatures ranging from 85° - 100°+F and lows from 60° - 70°. Fall days are usually mild and warm, with cool nights. Winter is when most of the precipitation falls, averaging over 55 inches per year, much of it in the form of snow in the high elevations. Highs range from 40° - 60° and lows from 30° - 40° in the lower elevations. Spring weather is variable with many pleasant days.

Location - The mansion is in Chico at 525 Esplanade; take Highway 99 to Chico, southeast on "E", then first left on Esplanade.
