Restored Mission
updated: Jan 08, 2014, 8:23 PM

By John Palminteri

The first phase of a $1.3 million project to restore worn out areas of the Santa Barbara Mission has finished. A colorful facade has been revealed.

It's very similar to the look citizens saw during a major restoration back in 1953. Special care was taken to strengthen the stone work at the front of the mission where some sections had started to crumble, and other areas actually fell off. Sealants, and fresh paint have also been applied. The funding came from donations and special financing on a national level called the Save America's Treasures Grant.

The scaffolding that had been up since late last year, came down today.
