General Information

The Neary-Rodriguez Adobe of Santa Cruz Mission SHP
Copyright: - California State Parks
The Neary-Rodriguez Adobe of Santa Cruz Mission SHP
Description - Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park is the site of a complex of buildings erected around the original Santa Cruz Mission.

Attractions - Part of the cluster, the Neary-Rodriguez Adobe was built in 1791 and is the last of the mission's many buildings to survive. The lovely, single-story adobe has been restored to its original appearance. MisiĆ³n la Exaltacion de la Santa Cruz was the 12th mission built in California. It was completed during the 1790s. Damaged by several earthquakes, it collapsed in 1857.

Recreation - The mission park has exhibits and guided tours available to the public. Parking, picnic areas, restrooms and a visitor center are also availble.

Climate - Climate in the San Francisco-Bay area varies greatly with elevation and the amount of coastal influence. Areas with more coastal influence experience moderate temperatures year round with fog likely from June through mid-August. Plan your coastal visit in the late summer or fall to ensure the best conditions for viewing the scenery. Also, occasional clear days between winter and spring storms are incomparable. Areas further inland experience greater temperature extremes, with relatively cooler winters and hot summers. Inland areas often receive frost on winter nights. As throughout most of California most of the precipitation comes in the winter months, with April through October normally very dry.

Location - The historic park is in downtown Santa Cruz; take Mission Street to Mission Plaza. The adobe is located one block off the plaza on School Street.
