Historic Juarez Building
updated: Mar 16, 2014, 2:47 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

Montecito landmark in peril. The Juarez/Homer, a County Landmark building dating from c. 1840 at 461San Ysidro Road, is slated for demolition. The County Historic Landmarks Advisory Commission acquiesced on January 13 to the owner's allegations that the Landmark adobe was not safe and demolition was necessary.

The Pearl Chase Society is appealing this decision to the Board of Supervisors. Because of their age, design, and functions, surviving adobe buildings from the Spanish and Mexican period are among the most historically and culturally significant structures in their communities. Adobe structures in worse condition throughout the west have been successfully rehabilitated. One has to look no further than Mission San Miquel on 101 north of Paseo Robles or Rancho Camulos on 126 east of Filmore. The adobes on the grounds of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum have recently been rehabilitated . Board of Supervisors hearing is scheduled for April 22.
