Kenny Slaught is aware that some of the most famous Santa Barbara architecture features include the centuries-old Hotel Virginia, El Pueblo Viejo district in revered downtown quarters along with the two pink towers of the Old Mission, hosting today retreats and festivals. The flashy tiles making up the County Courthouse are brilliant displays of murals and other impressive artwork. Nearby is the clock tower and observation deck, delivering a panoramic view of Santa Barbara. The Lobero theatre is home to premier performing arts events and dates back to 1873. It was rebuilt back in the 1920’s by George Washington Smith. These examples of the rich architecture of Santa Barbara are proof that, because of the founder’s advanced planning, many antique, architecturally amazing structures line the old districts.
