History Happy Hour at Home: It Happened on the Mesa
May 27, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Grab a glass and join us for a little history.
Local historian Betsy J. Green will give her online talk about one of Santa Barbara’s most beautiful neighborhoods:
It Happened on the Mesa
Did you know…
There were two Chumash villages on the Mesa? The Spanish were here in 1769? The Santa Barbara lighthouse was here? Princess Louise of England visited here? The earliest mansion in the area was on the Mesa? The best telescope in Southern California was on the Mesa?
Betsy J. Green has been writing and speaking about local history for more than 25 years. She is the author of the Way Back When books that celebrate “the history of Santa Barbara – one year at a time.”
