Third Site 1781 - 1818

— Point of Historical Interest —

Founded in 1777, the Santa Clara Mission was moved here after flooding of the first two churches. Construction was begun in 1781 under Jose Murguia and the Mission was dedicated by Junipero Serra in 1784.

The adobe structure was damaged by an earthquake in 1818 and a fourth church was built where the current Mission now stands.

The Women's Club Adobe at 3260 The Alameda is a remnant of the third Mission Complex.
