Santa Barbara County Earthquake history

A history page for the County with list of surnames from the history of the county

Santa Barbara's heritage is apparent. From the first visits by Spanish in the early 1600's and establishment of a military fortress in the late 1800's, the influence is still seen today. The combination of these factors have long made the region a favorite vacation area for Southern Californians and a delight to those fortunate enough to reside here.


The county is divided by the San Rafael Mountains into a north section and a southern section. The Pacific coastline runs along the western edge of the county. There are forested mountains in the east. In the central area are inland valleys where much of the wine grape growing takes place. The long coastline attracts many visitors and is beautiful.
