For anyone who is interested, I and two other folks will be giving a tour of the Branciforte neighborhood of Santa Cruz on Sunday, December 9th. We will start at 2 p.m. in front of Branciforte Elementary.
Here is the description from the Santa Cruz Free Skool.
The Bad Side of Town, with Ben, Blaize, and Sylvia
What happened to Branciforte Villa, the only villa established in California during the Spanish Colonial period? Where are the footprints and remains of this eighteeth-century settlement, and why don't we know more about it? Join us on a one- to two-hour walking tour of this area of Santa Cruz, and learn with us about the social, archeological, and political history of the Branciforte area.
