PART TWO: Missions of the Moneterey Bay Area

Abbink, Emily
January 1996
Missions of Monterey Bay Area;1996, p28
Into the Ohlone world of stability, tradition and harmony with nature came Spaniards. San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo was the first of seven missions founded in Ohlone territory. Three of these missions were located near Monterey Bay, California. The three missions founded around Monterey Bay shared many features, yet their individual histories are unique. Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo, also called Carmel, was Father Serra's headquarters. While Mission San Carlos did fairly well, Mission Santa Cruz seemed destined to struggle from the beginning. Before Indians joined a mission, however, they had to go through baptism. At Santa Cruz, escaped neophytes were a major problem for Franciscans.
