Julia Morgan

The building of Hearst Castle decades ago was well planned. It’s style a blend of an eye for the Mediterranean and eclectic mash-up. Thanks to female architect Julia Morgan, Hearst Castle and the surrounding grounds (airstrip included) are works of love on many levels. She spent 28 years working side by side with William Randolph Hearst on every detail. Today’s tour was more a tribute to her work than of the power of Hearst’s financial prowess. On the other hand, it doesn’t hurt to have someone paying the bills.

  1. You might also want to see the buildings at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, also designed by Julia Morgan. And my neighbor is dropping off his guest passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for you to use!
