About The Santa Barbara Conservancy

The Santa Barbara Conservancy was formed in 1998 by the late John Pitman, FAIA. His purpose was to bring together the wide array of individuals, public agencies, and other groups concerned with issues that fell under the broad rubric of historic preservation.

Envisioning the organization as one that would serve as an information exchange, a sounding board for ideas and actions, a forum for open and frank discussion of timely issues, and a facilitator of communications among the various members, Pitman further saw the Conservancy as a way to focus the attention of public policy-making agencies and proactive private organizations on the most critical issues impacting Santa Barbara’s quality of life.

As the organization has evolved, the Conservancy has expanded its mission to include educating the general public on historic preservation, and documenting Santa Barbara’s wonderful historic resources.
