Summerland

The American Riviera

Summerland is a rather relaxed, tiny, hillside community snuggled on the coast between Carpinteria and Montecito with breathtaking ocean and island views. Summerland’s modern history began in 1883 when Henry Williams bought the 1,050 acre Ortega Ranch for $17,000 and set aside 100 acres for a town. It was officially dedicated and named “Summerland” in 1889.

Summerland Overview

  • Summerland neighborhood view

Summerland is a rather relaxed, tiny, hillside community snuggled on the coast between Carpinteria and Montecito with breathtaking ocean and island views. Summerland’s modern history began in 1883 when Henry Williams bought the 1,050 acre Ortega Ranch for $17,000 and set aside 100 acres for a town. It was officially dedicated and named “Summerland” in 1889. The early settlement swelled in 1894 when a crew digging a water well on Lillie Avenue, the town’s main street, struck oil instead. Within the coming months, there were over a dozen producing wells, numerous lots were sold, and soap and cigar factories established. Soon after 1900, however, limited petroleum production and harsh winter storms put an end to the brief oil exploration.
