Faith Mission
409 State Street
Santa Barbara
Built 1889

The Faith Mission, or Hotel Savoy, is architecturally unique to southern Santa Barbara County because of its elaborate stamped metal facade. It may be the only late 19th century commercial building in downtown Santa Barbara with an intact original facade.

Faith Mission was built in 1889 to provide religious services and sleeping rooms to erring young men. It remained a hotel until the early 1980s when it was renovated.

When we photographed the building in March of 2017, it no longer housed a mission or hotel, but it continued to accommodate erring young men as the M8RX Nightclub & Lounge.
