Ever wondered what S.B. looked like before it became the modern South Coast town we know and love today? Be sure to check out the S.B. Historical Museum’s latest exhibit, Nicholas S. Firfires: Views From His Saddle, a collection of paintings by an S.B. rancher (1917-1990) whose passion was drawing what he saw from his saddle: cowboys, Native Americans, vaqueros, and classic old-time S.B. scenery. The exhibit opens Thursday, March 19, and will run through July 26. Call 966-1601 for more info.
