The Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park Photographic Collection contains 837 cataloged images that date from 1844 through
2009. Images depict the property as a functioning agricultural estate during John and Annie Bidwell's tenure and later, as
a state park.

resides at 525 Esplanade in the city of Chico and is bordered to the north and west by California State University, Chico,
to the south by Big Chico Creek, and to the east by The Esplanade. The park is accessible by car via The Esplanade.
