The Friends of Greystone are celebrating the 90th anniversary of the day the Doheny family moved into the historic mansion with a birthday bash, including music, wine and historical exhibits featuring family treasures and the history of the estate.

Ninety years ago, Lucy and Edward Laurence Doheny, Jr. moved in with their five children. The 46,054 square foot Tudor Revival designed by renowned architect Gordon Kaufmann was completed in 1928.

Surrounded by 18.5 acres of lush gardens designed by noted landscape artist Paul Thiene.
