Presidio Pastimes by Candlelight

While we were not able to hold our annual event in 2022, we still wanted to share with all of you what evening life was like over 200 years ago for the inhabitants of El Presidio de Santa Bárbara. Please enjoy this short educational film and we look forward to seeing you at future SBTHP events both in-person and online.
