The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation stewards the past and present of the Presidio Neighborhood and inspires preservation advocacy throughout the County in order to create a more vibrant community. Founded in 1963 by Dr. Pearl Chase and other concerned community leaders, SBTHP is the primary force in the reconstruction and preservation of El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park—Santa Barbara’s 18th century birthplace—and Casa de la Guerra—an historic adobe house museum featuring original furnishings and rotating exhibits. SBTHP also operates the Santa Inés Mission Mills in Solvang, California—two 1820s fulling and grist mills which are part of a National Historic Landmark District and the site of a future California State Park. Past, present and future come together at the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation.
