"Rolling Through the West"
…the stagecoach and its influence in the West

Valley Room Gallery

To many people the word “stagecoach” conjures up thoughts and images from the romance of movies and stories of the Old West. Come find out how it REALLY was as these swaying vehicles traversed the western United States carrying mail and those passengers who were brave enough for the adventure.

Enjoy the Historical Museum’s photos and information about stagecoach travel in Santa Barbara County. Along with the photos garnered from the museum’s archives the exhibit develops the history of the stagecoach, its construction and influence on the American West and California in particular.
