History of Montecito
Beginning on Tuesday, February 25, local historian Erin Graffy will host a special lecture series on Montecito history, as part of Santa Barbara City College’s School of Extended Learning. “In the past I’ve hosted lectures on Santa Barbara history, and I’ve been asked to focus now on Montecito,” Graffy said. “We’ll cover such themes as the farming history of the area, interesting people and estates, the history of such landmarks as The Miramar, and much more.” Graffy says Montecito has a rich and storied history, and attendees are bound to learn many interesting facts.
The three-part series is on Tuesdays from February 25 through March 10, from 3:30 pm to 5 pm at the Schott Center on Padre Street. The cost is $48 and those interested can sign up at www.sbcc.edu.
