An intimate experience with our newest exhibit.

Join us on October 30, 2021 - for an afternoon of Asian American history in and around El Presidio SHP. Learn about Santa Barbara's Nihonmachi (Japan Town), take a neighborhood history tour, and experience a private viewing of our newest exhibit celebrating the history of Jimmy's Oriental Gardens at the Pickle Room. Originally opened in 1947, for over sixty years Jimmy's Oriental Gardens served the community and was the last Chinese-run business in new Chinatown. 

Guests will be able to sip on a Mai Tai and sample signature egg rolls, courtesy of the Pickle Roomand SBTHP will have a few surprise artifacts on display from the Presidio Neighborhood and of course, Jimmy's. Any purchase of a general admission ticket includes an annual membership to become an SBTHP Advocate.
