The Muck mission is to celebrate the human spirit through the arts. Walter and Adella Muckenthaler built the 18 room mansion in 1925 atop this hill in Fullerton and it served as the center of their citrus and nut farming business, as well as their family home, for more than four decades. In 1965, their son Harold Muckenthaler donated the mansion and the surrounding 8.5 acres to the city with the proviso that his childhood home be used to provide the public with experiences that stimulate creativity and imagination, while conserving the heritage and architecture of the estate. And in 1999, The Muckenthaler Mansion received designation by the National Registry of Historic places. Today, though the City of Fullerton maintains ownership of the property, it is managed by The Muckenthaler Cultural Center Foundation and its elected Board of Directors. The City and the Muck enjoy a strong spirit of cooperation in the best interest of our mutual constituents. The Muck produces close to 100 events annually. These include concerts in our extraordinary outdoor amphitheatre, and our indoor cabaret space. That includes our five free-to-the-community Cultural Festivals, our Art gallery exhibits, a lecture series, and occasional film events.
