Building The Southern Pacific Railroad in Santa Barbara

Please note Pacific Standard Time.

Jean Guy Dube, Guest Speaker


Grab a glass and join us for this presentation in your living room as we travel the rails of South Santa Barbara County on a fascinating look back in time to the golden age of railroad building. The railroad’s arrival in Santa Barbara in 1887 had a lasting influence on our community. Architectural Historian, Jean-Guy Dube will examine not only the railroad’s depots that were built, but other structures such as passenger shelters, a unique baggage room, a private train shelter and Santa Barbara’s signature Spanish style roundhouse with rare photographs, unique maps and period blueprints.
