After Wilson Elementary School was closed in 1979 due to declining enrollment, the Housing Authority acquired this property with the goal of creating affordable family housing. The abandoned land became Wilson Cottages, comprised of 24 “bungalow-style” cottages closely resembling the neighboring single-family homes. This innovation earned it the Santa Barbara Beautiful Award in 1984, an honor given to exemplary projects that make Santa Barbara truly beautiful.
