    Biographical/Historical note

    This collection of drawings document proposed schemes for the Plaza de la Guerra redevelopment project during the 1920s. The Plaza de la Guerra located in Santa Barbara, California is a public square located in front of Casa de la Guerra. The Plaza was first established in 1853 and later restored beginning in September of 1921. The restoration effort was spearheaded by Santa Barbara businessman Bernard Hoffman whose vision for the plaza entailed creating a civic place around the Casa de la Guerra. The architect responsible for the proposed designs in this collection is unknown.

    Scope and Content note

L. Pope and dated January 15, 1925. No architect’s name is listed on the drawings.
