Santa Barbara embodies Spanish Colonial architecture from Old Mission Santa Barbara founded in 1786 to the Spanish Colonial Revival in the mid-1920s. Originally built in a Moorish Revival style, Santa Barabara suffered a 6.8 earthquake on June 29, 1925, that decimated its downtown. Massive efforts began rebuilding that led to a unified architectural style with stricter building codes.
