Hearst Castle—the historic estate of newspaper magnate, William Randolph Hearst, in San Simeon, California—will remain shuttered as wildfires continue to burn about two miles to the east of the landmark structure. All tours of the Castle have been cancelled through Sunday, August 28. Built in 1919, the 165-room estate was designed by the architect Julia Morgan and housed Heart’s monumental art collection.
