Mission Santa Barbara

This bench was used in the mission church during the 1800s. Only people of high social status were seated on benches or chairs, which were placed along the walls of the church. Most people sat on the floor on mats or embroidered carpets brought from home. There were no pews in the church until the late 1800s.
