Our One-of-a-Kind Courthouse: A Santa Barbara Treasure (Part One)
Grab a glass of wine and join us from your living room as urban design architect and historic preservation advocate David DeSelm shares the fascinating history of our one-of-a-kind Courthouse. Learn how losing an architectural design contest was one of the best things to happen to Santa Barbara and what inspired community leaders to decide that the Courthouse should be designed in the architectural style of southern Spain. Historic photos will illustrate the intriguing timeline of this incredible building.
