Santa Barbara Maritime Museum Lecture Series: Mesa and the Sea

| On 18, Dec 2016

Betsy J. Green’s illustrated talk/slideshow is based on her forthcoming book titled MESApedia, the first comprehensive history of the Mesa — from A to Z. The history of Santa Barbara’s Mesa is closely linked with the waters of the Pacific that mark its southern border: a picturesque lighthouse and a loyal lady who guided ships to safety for decades, a clipper ship captain who watched the sea from a cupola atop his Mesa home, a Chumash villa overlooking the beach, a Spanish fort with cannons ready to defend the harbor, shipwrecks, beached whales, a road called Cliff Drive that is nowhere near the cliff, and a famous rock on the beach.
