The Muckenthaler 18-room home was built in 1924 by Walter and Adella Muckenthaler. It was the family home until Harold, their only son, donated it to the city of Fullerton in 1965. He had one condition – the home was to be used as a cultural center for the public.
For the last 52 years The Muck (as it’s commonly called) serves up to 41,000 guests and visitors annually. Hosting special events, concerts, festivals and gallery exhibits it has become a Fullerton mainstay in building a strong community. The Muck also offers more than 6,000 hours of art education classes for adults and children.
In 1999, the home received designation from the National Register of Historic Places.
