Regarding Doheny Mansion. Edward L. Doheny was an American oil tycoon who drilled the first successful oil well in Los Angeles in 1892. His success set off a petroleum boom in Southern California, and made him a fortune. He purchased the mansion in 1901. Built in 1899 in the French Gothic architectural style, the three-story, twenty-two-room residence was designed by Theodore Eisen and Sumner P. Hunt. It is within Mount Saint Mary's University's Doheny campus, where it houses college offices, has occasional docent-led tours, and hosts chamber music concerts.
