Santa Monica Mountains


Located at King Gillette Ranch in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains, the Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor Center is jointly managed by the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area of the National Park Service, California State Parks, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority.

Built in the rehabilitated historic stables of King Gillette Ranch which was designed in 1928 by renowned California architect Wallace Neff, design of the visitor center was aimed both at preserving the appearance of the original structure and at demonstrating the most up-to-date methods of energy-efficient building. The visitor center has achievied a “net zero” energy balance, and a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Rating.
