Old Mission, Santa Barbara

2201 Laguna Street, 93105
Santa Barbara
United States

Mission Santa Barbara was the tenth of the California missions to be founded by the Spanish Franciscans.
The California State Historic Landmark Plaque #309 reads: Santa Barbara Mission was founded December 4, 1786. Portions of five units of its extensive water works, built by Indian labor, are preserved in this park, a filter house, Spanish grist mill, sections of aqueducts, and two reservoirs. The larger reservoir, built in 1806, is used today as part of the city water system. Ruins of the pottery kiln and tanning vats are here, also. The fountain and lavadero are nearby in front of the Old Mission. A dam, built in 1807, is located in the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, one and one-half miles up Mission Canyon.
