[2015] Jason Dong (Mrs. Morales): Nuestra Senora de la Soledad

Nuestra Senora de la Soledad

The mission today

Indians working

The mission now




Few Indians lived in the vicinity of this mission so Indians were from tribes farther than usual.

There were the Chalon, Esselen, Yokuts and Salinan.

Interesting facts

The mission buildings and land were ruined for almost 100 years but in 1932 Nuestra Senora de la Soledad was restored and today it is used for weddings, public museum, a tour, and a church.

-Salinas River (too low for irrigation) was used for livestock needs. The Arroyo Seco brought seasonal waters. A 15 mile long zanja or aqueduct dug by neophytes (rediscovered by archaeologists from CSU Monterey Bay in 2007) eventually irrigated some 20,000 acres in the Llano del Rey or lands about the mission.-The highest recorded population was 687 in 1804-The grounds, which still contain the ruins of the mission's adobe walls, are a haunting reminder of how difficult life must have been at this remote and desolate mission.
