In 1990, through the gift of Pierre Claeyssens to the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara, the historic Acheson House became the headquarters of the Architectural Foundation and the AIA Santa Barbara Chapter. This distinguished example of Victorian Italianate residential design was originally built in 1904 for James J. Acheson. Centrally located in downtown Santa Barbara, the Acheson House is the focus for the Foundation's and Chapter's many activities.
Come here to browse through our library of architectural books or view the current art exhibit in the gallery. The office is available for committee and membership meetings by advanced reservation.
