Santa Rosa Island: A Photographic Panorama

COST: [Free]
Organizer: Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Grab a glass and join us for this presentation in your living room by author Charles Healey about his book illustrating Santa Rosa Island.

At 84 square miles, Santa Rosa Island is the second largest of the eight Channel Islands. Established as a safe location to raise cattle away from the mainland, over 150 years of ranching led to a unique balance between 7,000 head of cattle, ranchers, horses, and transport ships, as well as a small military base during World War II.

Healey, a direct descendant of the island’s last ranching family, presents a visual historical account of the island’s cattle ranching era through his family’s private photograph collections. Channel Island foxes, elephant seals, and sea anemones are interspersed with ranch houses, cowboys, and empty beaches, all combined in this unique look at a piece of our region’s history.
