Santa Barbara in Santa Barbara County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Cold Springs Tavern
In those days sturdy stagecoaches know as "mudwagons" traveled the rugged San Marcos Pass. It was here horses were changed and passengers rested and enjoyed the noon day meal.
In 1900 the Doulton family bought the old tavern with its adjoining 40 acres.
In 1941 they sold it to the Ovington family whose daughter Audrey Ovington owns it to this day.
