California Historical Landmarks in Santa Barbara County
California Historical Landmark 1037
Santa Barbara County Courthouse
1100 Anacapa Street
The Santa Barbara County Courthouse is one of America's finest representations of Spanish-Andalusian architecture in a public structure. It stands as the prized jewel of the county whose people it serves and whose visitors it delights. After the devastating earthquake of 1925, the County of Santa Barbara hired the William Mooser Company to design a new home for county government. The building was completed in August 1929 at a cost of $1.3 and is the culmination of community spirit, county leadership and the will of a people to express their historic roots. Architects, designers, artisans and craftsmen employed their talents in this building and the surrounding landscape with consummate levels of skill.
