Ghosts stalk the Greystone Mansion

Ghosts stalk the Greystone Mansion

See the true meaning of Ghosts "living large" by visiting the largest private estate in the history of Beverly Hills! This 55-room English Tudor Mansion also has a 16-acre garden and is part of the National Registry of Historic Places. The interior of the mansion is closed to the public, but the exterior and surrounding park is completely open for visitors. Admission is free.

STORY POSTED Sunday May 06, 2007

By Richard Senate, Artwork Ricardo Pustanio © 2007

The stone mansion stands grim and dominant above the prosperous community of Beverly Hills, California. The castle-like pile has stood since it’s construction in the late 1920s by the wealthy and powerful Doheiney Family, oil magnates of their day. The house is now used as a stately park where wedding parties and movie companies use this mansion as a backdrop. But the lavish house isn’t at peace. Dark memories linger here in the deserted rooms and marble lined halls. Here the beauty of the carved woods and worked marble can not dispel the checkered past and evil deeds committed within the structure. These shadowed events live on through her ghosts. The Greystone Mansion is haunted, very haunted.

Psychic visitors shiver as they enter the place. The oppressive supernatural weight grips them in a dark vise. Murders happened here and the emotional traces of such psychic scars echo long. February 16, 1929 gunshots shattered the night. In there wake, a persistent mystery. Ned Doheiney was dead, a 45 caliber slug took his life, not far away, the body of his personal secretary Huge Plunkett also dead, the result of a gun shot wound to the head. The revolver was still in his hand. Murder/suicide over wages was the official finding of the police, but rumors persist that much more happened here. Was Ned’s wife, Lucy, involved in some way? Were the bodies moved before the police called? Then, there is the problem of the scandal. The patriarch of the family was involved in the infamous “Tea Pot Dome” case that unmasked massive corruption in the Republican Presidential Administration. Bribes were given to high government officials to drill in the oil rich “tea pot dome” section of Wyoming. Men would go to prison over this, others would have their lives ruined. It is said that Hugh was set to testify before the US Congress until given the ultimate reprieve by death. Many gained by his untimely death. Some speculate that he didn’t take his own life!

What happened that night within the thick walls of the Greystone? Rumors swirl about the case even unto this very day. The Doheinys were powerful enough to have financed a massive cover-up. Evidence seems to imply that some facts were sanitized before the police came. What was covered up? One story whispers that Hugh and Ned were homosexual lovers and that Lucy, discovering them in a passionate embrace, shot them both in a murderous rage. Both men were married and Ned had children, this seemingly rules out a gay scenario. Still, it is possible. Other tales say that Lucy had an affair with Hugh. They knew each other before she married into the Doheiny fortune. Can we ever know the truth? Perhaps psychic means can un-bury what gold entombed?

Psychic Debbie Christenson Senate came to the Mansion. She heard stories of the ghosts that haunt this structure and came to learn if these internet accounts were fact or fancy. The moment she crossed over the threshold something cold gripped her. As she wandered the massive place as a member of her party saw a ghost appear on the stairway. It was a man dressed in black with a distinct hat. A pork pie hat popular when silent films were made in near-by Hollywood and made famous by comic genius “Buster” Keaton. Reports tell of seeing phantom servants in the house: butlers in formal attire, and cooks in wide-striped smocks. It was in the chambers of Ned Douheiney that Debbie felt death. Then, when she crossed into the rooms where Lucy dwelled, the haunting presence grew oppressive and grim. Others have seen a ghost woman here and this spirit seems to dominate the place. Debbie smelled a perfume, a rich lilac smell, she linked to ghost lady. Slowly images of the past materialized before the psychic inner eye.

Her mind went back to that evening so long ago. She saw how Lucy’s husband’s inept handling of the bribes enmeshed the family in the scandal. His actions would bring down public wrath and topple them into poverty. She knew what had to be done to save the family and her children. What grown men were hesitant to do, she had the will to act. The pressures of the investigation were breaking Hugh down, she knew his weakness and saw in it a way to break the scandal and rid herself of both men. She took the 45 caliber pistol, walked into Ned’s room and shot him as he slept. She called Hugh and told him to come to the mansion. He foolishly asked permission to enter at the gate house but, when told Ned was unable to confirm his appointment, he went in, using the servants entrance. He helped Lucy move the body so it would look like an intruder had killed him. She, accounting to Debbie, told Hugh her husband had shot himself upon learning that they were having an affair! It was after the body was moved, and Hugh touched the gun, the truth dawned upon the man. He would be blamed for the crime! He couldn’t run and with the gun in his hand, he would be blamed, to face the hangman’s noose.

Seeing his life ruined, and to protect the woman he foolishly loved, he shot himself. Lucy had orchestrated the whole scenario. Her act saved the family fortune but doomed her spirit to walk the earth. Now the ghostly woman pays her eternal penance in the mansion. She had sacrificed herself to save the family fortune. Implausible? Perhaps, but such things have happened before. She did marry again, but it seemed more a marriage of connivance than anything else, and the roving eye of her new husband satisfied his lust with trips down the hall to the servant’s quarters.

Today the mansion is cold and dim, more mausoleum than a home, but to psychic Debbie Senate each room unfolded its mysteries. Here children, there a silent butler or hard-working servant. In the basement Debbie felt another presence. A woman who worked at the home and fell ill with sharp chest pains. She died of a sudden massive heart attack. As Debbie toured the rooms her psychic gifts saw the unfurnished rooms, becoming filled with the overstuffed chairs and overly ornate trappings of a wealthy home of the 1920s. Once again, the female presence made itself known. Control and power were her drugs of choice. She had to keep her eye on things. She was compelled to dominate her little world. Debbie’s impressions of Lucy Dohieney was confirmed by research.

As the sun drew low on the horizon an attempt was made to contact, Lucy, the phantom woman. The efforts provided little success, but another presence did come forth, a servant girl who took her own life did communicate with the team. She was pregnant in an age that shunned unwed mothers and in her dispare hung herself in the servant’s quarter’s. The spirit named Lucy’s second husband as the father of her unborn child. When he refused to help her, the young woman became despondent ending her life. She hinted at greater scandals within the mansion, but didn‘t elaborate.

Can a psychic vision revel the truth? Perhaps more investigations at this place can open the possibility that the deaths were not strictly a murder/suicide but something more sinister. It is worthy of review if nothing else. If other psychics come to test their skills here, they will not include Debbie. She vowed to never set foot in the place again! Dreams of the mansion, and its ghosts, plagued her nights for three days after the visit. “Never again,” she remarked. “Lucy can have the place until she deems it ready to finally leave.”
