The Landmark Project: CHL# 928

CHL# 928 SITE OF ORIGINAL MISSION AND REMAINING RUINS OF BUILDINGS OF MISSION DE LA PURÍSIMA CONCEPCIÓN DE MARÍA SANTISIMA

The ruins at this site are part of the original Mission La Purísima, founded by Padre Fermín de Lasuén on December 8, 1787, as the 11th in the chain of Spanish Missions in California. The mission was destroyed by earthquake on December 12, 1812, the present Mision (mission) La Purisima was then established several miles away.

Christine’s Note:  The “ruins” consist of this rock.  Just the one.  LOL…another one of those ‘I drove all the way out here for a rock?!’ landmarks.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
