The Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park is home to the oldest building in Santa Cruz County.  The entire adobe building was restored in 1991, and as part of that project, the adobe block floors were reconstructed based on the original construction. Over the past 25 years these reconstructed adobe have deteriorated. To protect the adobe block floors at the park and preserve this historical treasure, Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks is installing wooden platforms in three rooms in the adobe.

“We are so grateful to the California State Parks Foundation for supporting the restoration of the adobe block floors in the Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park.  This building, originally housing Neophyte families under the Mission system, is the only building of its kind preserved as a museum in the State and tells the important stories of the Ohlone and Yokuts Indians at the Mission.”
