Our One-of-a-Kind Courthouse - Architecture Presentation

Santa Barbara Courthouse

We will journey back to key events and people who shaped the Spanish image of Santa Barbara, the effect of the 1925 earthquake and the creativity of two architects whose efforts produced such a special building. Proceeds benefit the Courthouse Legacy Foundation. Wine and cheese will be served. Space extremely limited. Get tickets here. 

Proceeds benefit the CLF. The Courthouse Legacy Foundation (CLF) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to the conservation, preservation, restoration, enhancement, and educational legacy of the Santa Barbara Courthouse. 

Did You Know...

The Sunken Garden is host to community-wide celebrations all year long. What is often mistaken about this magical place is its layout of stone walls—many are told it is the basement of the former courthouse prior to the 1925 earthquake. This is myth. The sandstone blocks that form the current day landscape were recycled from the older courthouse buildings after the 1925 earthquake.
