Some of the most eminent Santa Barbara architecture includes the centuries old Hotel Virginia, El Pueblo Viejo district in historic downtown and the two pink towers of the Old Mission, which hosts retreats and festivals. Kenny Slaught has explained that the brightly colored tiles of the County Courthouse houses brilliant murals and other striking attributes, and nearby the clock tower and observation deck allow for a panoramic view of the entire city. The Lobero theatre not only houses the regions premier performing arts events but also dates back to 1873 and was rebuilt in the 1920’s by George Washington Smith. These are a few samples of the celebrated past of Santa Barbara, where, because of the founder’s advanced planning, many antique, architecturally sound buildings line the city streets.
