Description
Bernheimer's Oriental Gardens was a popular tourist destination in Pacific Palisades between it's opening in 1927 and its decline with the advent of World War II. Built by Adolph Bernheimer, a collector of antiquities from East Asia, the gardens stood on the bluff just east of Sunset Boulevard at Pacific Coast Highway. The gardens were ultimately lost, first to an anti-Japanese public, and later to massive landslides in the area.
