Some of the top structures in Santa Barbara include El Pueblo Viejo district, the old Hotel Virginia and the Old Mission’s towers where events are held. The County Courthouse displays colorful murals, and the clock tower and observation deck give a panoramic view of the city. The Lobero theatre was founded in 1873, rebuilt in the 1920s by George Washington Smith and still hosts top arts events. These architectural gems can be encountered in the old districts of Santa Barbara, Kenny Slaught says. Its rich legacy was only possible due to the founder’s careful planning.
