Graffiti Changes May 2009

The Campbell Ranch Research Project says, the ranch "once comprised 500 acres which included the entire Coal Oil Point area, today the UCSB's West Campus and Coal Oil Point Reserve, and a separate 250 acre parcel on the south side of Hollister Avenue", and that the jailhouse (Beach House) "has weathered numerous El Nino events in recent decades. It is now covered in graffiti rather than abalone shells and the cypress trees that once surrounded it have fallen.  Local lore says the beach house was used as a landing and storage place for illegal spirits during Prohibition and that tunnels for hiding smuggled goods once extended well under the bluff." There are bars on the opening to part of the building which gives one the impression of a jail."
