The Castro House

A Historic Property in the Heart of Carpinteria

The Castro House

Originally built in 1902 by a banker W.D. Isendburg. Simeon F. Shepard purchased the house for his family, leaving it to his daughter Isabel Shepard. Isabel married Fran Castro and since the inheritence of the house and their union, it has been known as The Castro House.

The Castro House originally was set on the corner of Maple Ave and Carpinteria Ave, were the 76 Gas Station now stands. It was moved to where it stands now (one lot south over) in 1949.

About The Castro House Now

After 112 years, this old house received its first face lift with a new roof, new rain gutters and a gorgeous paint job that we hope will last another 112 years.
