The mansion seen on the beginning credits of the TV series "DYNASTY" was actually the Filoli Estate located thirty miles south of San Francisco off Highway 280 in Woodside, California. It was built in 1916 by William Bower Bourn, Jr., with the profits from his Empire Mine in Grass Valley, and is now operated as a museum by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The name "Filoli" was derived from the first two letters of the three words derived from the motto "To FIGHT for a just cause, to LOVE your fellow man, and to LIVE a good life." The outdoor scenes at the Carrington mansion were shot at a Pasadena home located at 1145 Arden Road.
