50th Golden Anniversary - A Friendly Opportunity to Experience Hearst Castle

Friends of Hearst Castle, a nonprofit cooperating association affiliated with Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument, proudly announces a year of celebration to commemorate 50 years of public tours - 50 years of public access to this historical house museum - 50 years in which the public has ascended the Enchanted Hill.

A private country estate containing some 165 rooms and situated on 86,000 breathtakingly beautiful acres in San Simeon, California, La Cuesta Encantada
(The Enchanted Hill) is truly a sight to behold.

In 2008, Hearst Castle celebrated its 50th anniversary of public tours with many special anniversary events. From symphony performances to enchanted evening tours and a holiday feast, this is the time to visit Hearst Castle. Learn More about Hearst Castle Special Events.
