2015 Descendants Luncheon

On October 17, 2015 the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation hosted descendants of the families who resided at El Presidio de Santa Barbara, the 18th-century Spanish fort and Santa Barbara’s birthplace, for a wonderful tamale lunch at the newly restored Alhecama Theatre at El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park.
