This is an isolated view of elaborate brick chimneys on the historic Greystone Mansion (Beverly Hills, California, USA), built 1926-1928 and dedicated as a City park in 1971. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the mansion was nearly demolished for a subdivision, but the City of Beverly Hills stepped in and saved the building and grounds in 1965. The interior of the mansion is not open to the public, but the exterior and grounds are – and they are very beautiful! You may have seen this place without knowing it, because it is a very popular location for movies, TV shows, and commercials. It’s also a must-see for visitors to the Los Angeles area. Greystone Mansion (also known as Doheny Mansion) is believed by many to be haunted, and special ghost-themed tours are available around Halloween.
