Nestled between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, just ninety miles northwest of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara draws visitors from all over the globe with its mix of cultural sophistication, access to the wine country, wide sandy beaches, grand vistas, whale watching, and the charm of its Spanish heritage. And right in the middle of this eclectic scene, where billionaires converge with the hoi polloi, is the residence of Charles Fernald, Santa Barbara's first Yankee king. Fernald's fourteen-room Queen Anne-style Victorian mansion, The Palms, “an eyeful of porches, balconies, and gables,? was transplanted from its original lot on Santa Barbara Street to its current location on a quiet and shady corner of Montecito Street, a stone’s throw from Santa Barbara City College. The move is a perfect metaphor for the city's evolution from a Spanish pueblo to a city prominent enough to engender its name on a television show seen by millions around the globe; a city steeped in a rich, multicultural, and colorful history.
