The Presidio Chapel at El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park is a faithful reconstruction of Santa Barbara’s first church. 

Casa de la Guerra is an icon of Santa Barbara's Spanish-Mexican heritage and offers one of the most charming outdoor courtyards in all of Santa Barbara.

Part of the Mission Santa Inés National Historic Landmark District that includes the Santa Inés Mission and 95 acres of surrounding land, the mills complex is under the stewardship of SBTHP.  

As the last Chinese–run business in “new” Chinatown, Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens has been an important part of the diverse community of people who have lived and worked within the Presidio Neighborhood.

Since its beginnings in 1986, the mission of the Presidio Research Center has been to develop and curate a collection of research materials and cultural objects to support the archaeological, research, educational, and curatorial programs of SBTHP.

SBTHP puts on a number of exciting programs every year. These regular, annual programs serve our community from the youngest to the oldest members. With hands-on activities, ceremonies, and lectures - there’s for everyone!
