Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument

Hearst Castle was once the private home of publisher William Randolph Hearst and is now a California State Historical Monument and State Park. The estate, overlooking the spectacular California coast was the shared design endeavor of architect Julia Morgan and William Randolph Hearst. Craftsmen labored for twenty-eight years under their direction to combine architectural design and the collections of Mr. Hearst into La Cuesta Encantada® "The Enchanted Hill".


"It's the most distinctive house in America. Certainly there are larger private residences....more formal, more predictable, more opulent ones. But there's not a mansion on either side of the Mississippi that can hold a candleabra to Hearst Castle, in San Simeon, California."
