Hill-Carrillo Adobe

Experience one of Santa Barbara's most beloved adobes...

Satellite exhibits at the Historic Hill-Carrillo Adobe 

The Museum was pleased to collaborate with the Hutton Parker Foundation to create new exhibits that celebrate both the adobe and the history of local philanthropy.

Constructed in 1825 as a private home by Daniel Hill, the building at 11-15 East Carrillo Street has served as public meeting place for much of its almost two hundred-year history.  Photographs, artwork, and historical items from the Museum's and Foundation's collections are on view during business hours.

The Hill-Carrillo adobe is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of nine California Historic Landmarks in Santa Barbara. It was home to the Santa Barbara Foundation for 83 years, and since 2014 has been owned by the Hutton Parker Foundation.

We hope you will visit and experience the ambience of this early California home that has been so lovingly restored.


The Hill-Carrillo Adobe is located at 15 East Carrillo Street.  For more information about the Hutton-Parker Foundation, click here.
