Santa Barbara Arts Community Hoping To Get Part Of $300 Million Dollar Estate From Mysterious Heiress

Posted on Thursday, November 1, 2012 12:21am

The South Coast is home to an oceanfront mansion with unparalleled views. But, the Santa Barbara mansion went unused by its owner for more than a half century.

It’s the estate of the mysterious multi-millionaire Huguette Clark, who died last year at the age of 105.

She left two wills, and there’s a huge battle over her assets. But, in one will, she mentioned leaving part of her estate to set up an arts foundation, and now, some Santa Barbarans are trying to do it.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story, from Santa Barbara.
