    The History of Oil in the Santa Barbara Channel--Opening Reception

    Naturally occurring oil and asphalt seeps close to Summerland were known to the native Chumash peoples who used asphaltum from this area for thousands of years. From 1890-1898, asphalt from Goleta, Carpenteria, and More Mesa was mined and shipped around the country. In fact, some of the historic streets of New Orleans are paved with tar from the Alcatraz Asphalt Company’s mine on land in Goleta, now part of UCSB.
