Edward Borein outside the Oreña Adobe, 1921

Constructed in 1849 by Don Jose de la Guerra, the Oreña Adobe was originally used to house supplies brought in from ships anchored in the harbor. It was eventually purchased by Don Gaspar Oreña, who added the second story in 1858 after his marriage to de la Guerra’s daughter, Antonia Maria. It became the Oreña's fall and winter home. The property was handed down to their descendents, who remain the present day owners. The patio and additional rear structures were added by Doña Acadia Oreña Rickard, Don Gaspar’s daughter, during the building’s restoration in 1921 by architecht James Osborne Craig, who also designed the neighboring El Paseo structure.

Shortly after arriving in Santa Barbara in 1921, renowned cowboy artist Edward Borein established his studio in the Oreña Adobe, where he remained until moving into a new studio in the El Paseo in 1925.
