Interesting Fact:  Despite Hearst Castle’s location, it attracts about 1 million visitors per year.

Just Imagine Being a Guest of William Randolph Hearst at Hearst Castle in its heyday in the 20’s and 30’s! I love the style of the 20’s – the way the men and women dressed back then just impresses me. The Hearst Castle was designed by architect Julia Morgan between 1919 and 1947. What a HUGE Undertaking!
