Abstract

The article focuses on El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park as a model for partnership and shared use of a historic space. It begins with a description of El Presidio’s history and emphasizes the importance of partnership for the site’s contemporary success. The article then lays out a number of different shared-use partnerships—including the Anacapa School, the Pickle Room bar, and the Standing Sun Wine tasting room—all of which pair a reverence for their sites’ histories with a business that engages their community. The article also discusses broader community partnerships that have been mutually beneficial in driving business success and drawing new audiences and visitors.
