The History of 510 Casitas Road
Built in 1933 by an original Santa Barbara stone mason, 510 Casitas Road is rich with Santa Barbara history. Arcangelo Goggia emigrated to the United States in 1908 from his home village of Como, Italy where he had apprenticed as a stone mason. From Ellis Island, he made his way to the West coast and settled in Santa Barbara. In addition to farming, Arcangelo worked as a stone mason in Santa Barbara, working on numerous notable projects like Trinity Episcopal Church, restoration of the Santa Barbara Mission after the 1925 earthquake, and Arnoldi’s Cafe. He also carved freehand the sandstone spheres that grace the pillars at the corner entrances of the County Courthouse.
Arcangelo and his fellow masons and craftsmen constructed the home at 510 Casitas Road for Arcangelo’s family. Great care and attention to detail was put into the design and construction of the home. Goggia’s family and two generations after have lived in the residence until 1986, and has been cared for and well-maintained since.
