Mission Santa Cruz

recommendation by goose

Founded in 1791, this mission has a record of more native uprisings than many other missions do (including getting attacked and nearly burnt down and a rebellion and beating of a mission priest by native americans for whipping them with a metal tipped whip). Not much of the original structures remain (there is a row of buildings that do) but a new gothic style church was built on top of the rustic adobe ruins in the late 19th century.
