After lunch was a great time to take a tour of the Mansion where inside we found vendor’s of fine Automobile Art from oil paintings to sculptures and lots of other Automotive memorabilia. We saw how the Doheny family lived, from their private bowling alley and billiard room to the hideaway bar that was used during the times of prohibition in the 1930’s and marvel at the mansions breathtaking views.
