Far beyond being only a pass, the Gaviota Tunnel witnessed a Mexican-American War episode, dating back from 1846. As it is printed on its descriptive plaque, this pass was used as the perfect place for the local defense to plot an ambush against Lieutenant Colonel Fremont, who was cautioned of the trap. This mission was eventually accomplished with no violence or murders. Visiting the Gaviota Pass is undoubtedly a way to have a flashback of almost two centuries time. It is ranked 248 on the California Historical Landmarks official list.
Declared to gather some of the foremost archaeological proof in the state of California, Burton Mound is an ancient indigenous village which was discovered in 1542 by navigator and explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, first European to set foot on current California. “It is said that native population died in the early 19th century from several diseases apparently introduced by the Catholic missions in Santa Barbara,” notes Kenny Slaught. Coming to Burton Mound is a great opportunity to visit a Historical Landmark named in 1939 thanks to its precious contribution to Californian history. Burton Mound is officially ranked 306.
