Santa Barbara, California

The City of Santa Barbara is the county seat of Santa Barbara County, California. This coastal city is located between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and has a current population of about 88,400. Santa Barbara officially joined the Union in 1850. Santa Barbara has seen a wide range of industry, from offshore oil drilling to silent film-making and technology. Today, education and tourism are also key economic sectors. Top employers in Santa Barbara include Raytheon, the University of California, Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

Santa Barbara grew quickly after 1850, as gold-seeking prospectors flocked to California. In the late 19th century, the town gained a reputation as a resort destination, attracting wealthy new residents. At the same time, oil was discovered in the spiritualist community of Summerland. The oilfield was highly productive until about 1940. In 1957, another oilfield was discovered just offshore, and was operated by Chevron, Corp. until 1996 as Summerland Offshore Oil Field. The Loughead Aircraft Manufacturing Company, a precursor to Lockheed Corporation, was founded in Santa Barbara. World War II brought substantial military development to Santa Barbara. In 1939, the Work Projects Administration built a Naval Reserve Center, which operated until 1995. Today the center is home to the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. The Marine Corps Air Station Santa Barbara was active from 1942-1946; the site is currently occupied by Santa Barbara Municipal Airport and the University of California, Santa Barbara.
