Casa del Herrero Docent Training to Begin Jan. 16

Casa del Herrero, the 11-acre National Historic Landmark in Montecito designed by noted architect George Washington Smith in the mid-1920s, announces its 2014 docent training.

Docents are trained to lead 90-minute walking tours of this community treasure.

Docent training will begin Thursday, Jan. 16 with an orientation and overview, then continue weekly through March 20 on Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Classes will be conducted by local designers and historians as well as Casa volunteers.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the work of the noted architect, Spanish history and design, antiques, landscape design and the fascinating Steedman family who lived here for more than 60 years.

If you would like to participate in the Casa del Herrero Docent Training Program, or would like more information about volunteer opportunities, please call Susannah Gordon at 805.565.5653 or email [email protected].

We invite you to come learn more about the Casa del Herrero by visiting us online for a virtual tour. Casa del Herrero is a 501(c)3 organization.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
