Kenny Slaught Discusses Area’s Spanish Colonial Architecture
Kenny Slaught points out that Santa Barbara city planners, as early as 1925, recognized the natural charm of Southern California and developed legislation to preserve the city’s Spanish Colonial architecture. Thus, the city became the first in the country to consider the importance of historical buildings. The County Courthouse is the most common downtown destination for visitors to the area, and is adorned with brilliantly colored tiles and murals depicting vibrant scenes from the city’s past. The Old Mission church has been operating for over 200 years, also known as the “Queen of Missions,” offers a thorough view into the formation of the New World via guided tours and an extensive museum.
