Known for his altruism and genuine interest in American history of arts and urban design, California-based entrepreneur Kenny Slaught acknowledges the impact of impeccable architectural trends and traditions on Santa-Barbara’s construction industry. As Slaught emphasizes the Spanish inspired buildings and intricately designed archways and structures stretched along this small coastal town of the Golden State on his blog at KennySlaught.com, he further elaborates on the history of constructional upsurge in Santa Barbara and provides insights into how architectural trends evolved as the government tried to smooth the uncontrolled housing growth over a century.
Recognizing the natural charm of Southern California, Santa Barbara city planners developed legislation to preserve Spanish Colonial architecture as early as 1925, making the city became the first populace in the United States to consider the importance of historical buildings. Kenny Slaught notes that the most popular of these buildings is the county courthouse, adorned with brilliantly colored tiles and murals depicting striking scenes from the city’s past. A church in operation for over 200 years, The Old Mission, also known as the “Queen of Missions,” gives visitors an amazing view into the formation of the New World through an expansive museum and guided tours.
