Lost Los Angeles: Marion Davies Beach House

Marion Davies Beach House Los Angeles
The Marion Davies Beach House, Los Angeles

Built in the 1920s by publisher William Randolph Hearst for his true love, movie star Marion Davies, this Georgian Revival mansion was for several years Hollywood’s unofficial summer club.

The party moved to Malibu in the 1940s, causing Davies to sell the estate. It was a hotel for a few years before it was demolished in 1955.
