Santa Barbara in Santa Barbara County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Oreña Adobe
Don Gaspar Oreña bought the adobe and added the story-and-a-half portion in 1858, shortly after his marriage to de la Guerra's daughter.
Eventually, it became the fall and winter home of the Oreñas, and is still owned by their descendants. In 1920, the patio and rear structures were added by Doña Acacia Oreña Rickard, daughter of Don Gaspar Oreña. Architect was James Osborne Craig.
