La Purisima Mission State Park
La Purisima Mission, a true jewel in our community, is the location for our annual weekend event, Wine and Fire 2017. Founded in 1787, the La Purisima Mission land holdings once covered nearly 470 square miles. Bordered by the Santa Maria River in the North and the Gaviota coastline in the South, the land was home to the Chumash people and Spanish settlers. The mission was best known for its hides and blankets and, at its peak, inhabitants herded as many as 24,000 cattle and sheep.
Today, history lives at La Purisima. The most extensively restored mission in the state, La Purisima hosts over 200,000 visitors each year for recreation and a chance to explore California's heritage.
