Mission Statement

The mission of the Goleta Valley Historical Society is to collect, preserve, interpret and foster research of Goleta Valley’s history through exhibits, programs, and stewardship of the historic Rancho La Patera, home to the Stow family.

Description

Goleta Valley Historical Society had a modest beginning - a dream to "collect and promote our unique history." This is the mission of the Society, which in 1967 assumed stewardship of one of our community’s most significant and treasured landmarks - the headquarters of historic Rancho La Patera and home of the pioneering Stow family. Rancho La Patera has become the focal point of Goleta Valley’s rich and ethnically diverse history for the thousands of visitors that tour annually. This landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, offers a rare opportunity to experience what life was like here during the early twentieth century.
