Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum and Parks-Janeway Carriage House
The Santa Ynez Valley Historical Society was organized in 1961 by a group of dedicated Valley residents who recognized the need to preserve local history. Over the years, a single room has developed into a large complex surrounding a beautiful courtyard. The Historical Museum houses fascinating exhibits from the Chumash period through early 20th Century ranching days. The Parks-Janeway Carriage House has a superb collection of horse-drawn vehicles and related tack. The Ellen Gleason Memorial Library is devoted to local and California history.
The Santa Ynez Valley Historical Society digital collection at California Revealed consists of a collection of 16mm films documenting California's natural wonders. The majority of the films contain raw film footage shot by filmmaker George Andreson.
