Santa Barbara County Courthouse
a site passed many times each week…taken for granted
iconic Spanish Colonial Revival
designed by William Mooser III
completed in 1929
replacement for Greek Revival Courthouse badly damaged by 1925 earthquake
view of Queen of the Missions Santa Barbara (see post ‘The Queen and the Rose Garden – 4-19-2013 ) from the Courthouse El Mirador clock tower
freshly appreciated when seen through the eyes of a visitor!
