The city's oldest mansion is to be moved to Heritage Square to become a Victorian cultural museum. Photo dated March 16, 1972. Mt Pleasant House, also known as the Perry Residence, is generally considered to be the oldest mansion in Los Angeles. Architects Ezra F. Kysor and W. J. Mathews built this Italianate/Greek Revival home in 1876, the same year as they whipped up St Vibiana’s and a few years after Kysor came up with the Pico House. It was originally the home for William Hayes Perry.In the spring of 1972, shortly after designation, it was announced the owners, Jack E. Huntsberger and his wife, were giving the house to the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America who had plans to move it to Heritage Square. For some reason, that relocation took more than three years, ultimately occurring on December 18, 1975. The house is huge. It sports four bedrooms and a parlor, and they’ve each got a bath and a dressing room.
