History

Carpinteria got its name from the Spanish; they gave it that name because the settlers of the area, the Chumash tribe, had a large maritime canoe-building or “carpentry” enterprise there. This was made possible due to Tomols, a naturally occurring surface tar utilized to seal canoes which is available in the region. This surface tar is still detectable at certain locations, like Tar Pits Park on Carpinteria State Beach’s campground beach. The 3 nearby drilling platforms able to be seen from the seashore are within the Carpinteria Offshore Oil Field, ranked number 50 among California’s biggest field.
