The Hobart/Barr/Lucking Residence
Registered Historical Landmark No. 104
The remarkable home was built by Captain Frank Hobart, prominent Ventura Justice of the Peace and his wife Julia, both of whom were very active in public affairs and were proponents of the Grand Army of the Republic of Union Veterans of the Civil War. The second significant resident, beginning in 1920, was Leonard Barr, longtime public servant, mayor and developer of a large part of residential Midtown Ventura. Catalina and Anacapa Streets were developed by Mr. Barr, who also built the elegant Hotel La Barr on Thompson Boulevard at California Street (demolished circa 1960).
In 2008, William, Bonnie and Alison Lucking began an ambitious and loving restoration of the residence after many years of the former owners' neglect, and were aided in their efforts
Erected by City of San Buenaventura Historical Preservation Commission. (Marker Number 104.)
