The Historic Resources Committee AIA Los Angeles, in collaboration with the Annenberg Community Beach House and the Santa Monica Conservancy are happy to invite you to learn more about the rich history of the Annenberg Beach House with a tour of the complex lead by a Santa Monica Conservancy docent.

“The Beach House story is one of evolution from private to public, starting with the development of the property at 415 Pacific Coast Highway as an opulent private estate in the 1920s. The property was originally developed during the Gold Coast era of the 1920s by William Randolph Hearst for actress Marion Davies. The Davies estate featured a mansion of 100-plus rooms and an ornate marble swimming pool. As with many Hearst projects, the vision of architect Julia Morgan provided a cohesive grace to the rambling estate. The Beach House was a hot spot on Santa Monica's Gold Coast, with Hearst and Davies entertaining luminaries from the Hollywood set, such as Charlie Chaplin, Louis B. Mayer, Samuel Goldwyn, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable and other stars of the day. The site opened to the public as the Annenberg Community Beach House on April 25, 2009.”

*Event limited to 45 people on a first come first serve basis. There will be 3 tours limited to 15 people each starting at 11am, 12pm and 1pm. Each tour lasts about 30 minutes. Please meet at the courtyard by the guest house.
