Title

El Cuartel
122 East Canon Perdido Street

Description

This remnant of the Presidio was built in 1788, making it the oldest building in Santa Barbara. For many decades, the family of Presidio soldier Jesus Valenzuela lived in the adobe. In 1941, a group of citizens purchased El Cuartel and it became Boy Scouts Headquarters. The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation acquired the building in 1964 and donated it to the State of California, making El Cuartel the nucleus of the future El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park.
