Padding about in my Bohemian chic sandals from Marrakech, we were on an errand downtown the other day, parking near the SB Historical Society. After completing our task we tucked in for a quick visit, so worthwhile! It’s a fabulous museum dedicated to the history of Santa Barbara, chock-a-block full of interesting shows, as well as home to a fascinating permanent collection. Founded in 1932, and housed in several locations until this dedicated site was chosen for a classic adobe building (the bricks made on site), it was inaugurated in 1965. Make sure to stroll the grounds, which include a courtyard, library and two historic adobe buildings. By the way, remember Old Fiesta Days are coming soon, August 5-9.
