HELP CELEBRATE CASA'S BIG 90th BIRTHDAY!
90 years ago this June, the young downtown of Santa Barbara was dealt a swift blow by the Great Santa Barbara Earthquake of 1925.
Awakened abruptly, George Fox Steedman, staying at the downtown Santa Barbara Club while the finishing touches were made on his new home in nearby Montecito, got a ride to take him to the site where he half-feared he'd find the efforts of the past 2 years in a great pile of rubble.
But to his great relief, there stood the enchanting Casa del Herrero, not so much as a single crack to be found. The story goes that Steedman actually moved in that very day.
You are invited to help us 'shake it up' in celebration of the Casa's (and the Earthquake's) 90th birthdays! Check back with us for details, but save the date now - the last weekend in June, 2015!
Party All Year Event!
Easter Egg Hunt and Brunch
Don't miss out on Casa del Herrero’s very first family-friendly Easter Egg Hunt and Brunch, taking place in the beautiful gardens of the Casa: the little ones will search for colorful eggs tucked away in wheel barrows, hay bales - who knows where? (we’re not giving away any more hints here!)
A scrumptious al fresco brunch is geared to the tastes of both little and larger people, and children will be entertained and engaged with special games, prizes, and hand-made craft projects on this family day at the Casa.
Tickets are limited: They are available by phoning the office at 805-565-5653.
Thank you for your vision and generosity.
