Step back in time to experience and savor the mansion's exquisite appointments. Learn about its history - and about the lives of Edward and Estelle Doheny, and the many movers and shakers who lived on or near Chester Place.
Organized in groups of 15, 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 Chester Place segment, which lasts approximately 1-1/2 hours, involves walking and climbing a few stairs. So please wear comfortable walking shoes.
