The earliest Western settlements in Santa Barbara were the late 18th century Mission Santa Barbara and the Presidio, a military installation built by Spain in 1782. After falling to US control during the Mexican-American War, Santa Barbara grew quickly, first due to the California Gold Rush and later as a health and luxury resort for travelers, many of whom became permanent residents.
