THE UNTOLD TRUTH OF HEARST CASTLE

If you spend any time at all in the realm of late 19th and 20th century history, then you’re eventually going to run across the figure of William Randolph Hearst. In fact, unless you restrict yourself to a very narrow field of view, it’s all but impossible to escape him. Hearst was a newspaper publisher who also dabbled in Hollywood, American politics, and more. And, as Britannica notes, his oftentimes ruthless and sometimes sensationalist tactics sold papers, but dramatically changed the landscape of news and the media in the early 20th century.

And it all made Hearst a very, very rich man. There’s a lot that could be said about Hearst’s life or how he spent his money, but one of the grandest and most obvious signs of his money is the estate that’s now known as Hearst Castle. Located in San Simeon, California, this collection of structures is perhaps one of the most classic evocations of Hearst and his sensibilities. From the opulent central residence, to the extensive art collection, to the private zoo that once took up a surprising amount of space there, it’s all enough to make you feel a little dizzy. And that’s all before we even get into the history of this place. This is the untold truth of Hearst Castle.
