The students who took part in our Project SEED Program this summer are Felipe Vega, Maria Sanchez, Lynette Duran, Jorge Perez, Melia Asucan and Nikki Sibal. There will be a poster session of their research prior to lunch.
The Doheny home is a Gothic Renaissance style Victorian mansion and was designed by architects Theodore Augustus Eisen and Sumner P. Hunt in 1899. The mansion boasts a marble-pillared Great Hall, the Pompeian Room with imported Siena marble and a Tiffany iridescent glass dome. The home contains furniture copied by permission of the Italian government from Pompeian furniture in a Rome museum and many of the original furnishings in its other opulent rooms. Chester Place was an exclusive gated community of Victorian mansions in the early 1900’s and home to oil baron Edward L. and Carrie Estelle Doheny for almost 60 years. Our luncheon will take place in the Pompeian Room.
