Tour the Doheny Mansion


Experience the grandeur of early Los Angeles with a visit to the Doheny Mansion located on the downtown campus of Mount Saint Mary's University at 10 Chester Place. Chester Place was an exclusive gated community of Victorian mansions in the early 1900's and home to oil baron Edward L. and Carrie Estelle Doheny for almost 60 years.

Organized in groups of 23, docent-led tours commence in the former home of Edward Doheny's son, Ned, at No. 10 Chester Place and conclude in the Doheny Mansion. The complete tour lasts approximately 2-1/2 hours; the tour involves walking, standing, and climbing a few stairs. So please wear comfortable walking shoes. There will be no public or private tours offered in 2021.
