Way Back When in Santa Barbara -- March 24, 1918 -- 100 years ago today, the Santa Barbara Morning Press wrote about the main meeting place for folks in Carpinteria that was called the Auditorium. “Every man, woman and child in the Carpinteria valley is proud of our hall. It is the place for all public meetings, Red Cross work and civic bodies.”.
It was also the place where people watched silent movies. This 1914 building is still here at 888-892 Linden Avenue.
