Trail Quest: Willmann Homestead

This is the sixth in a series of articles on the homesteads along Manzana Creek and Sisquoc River. This one covers the homesteads of Adolph and Herman Willmann, as well as Wellman Mesa, which is near where the 1966 Wellman Fire started. Article appears in section A of today’s edition of Santa Barbara News-Press. The next, and last, article in the series will cover the Miller, Abels, and Montgomery homesteads.
