Come join San Juan Bautista SHP and the Plaza History Association for Movies in the Park 2010! The park is part of a nationally recognized historic landmark adjacent to the extant portion of Californias 15th Spanish era mission. The park and its Plaza represent what was once the town square of the largest town in central California and a vital crossroad for travel between northern and southern California. In the park, visitors can gain an appreciation of California peoples, from Native Americans through the Spanish and Mexican cultural influences, right up to the American period in the late 19th century. The park includes several structures built in the 1800s. The four main historic museums are the Plaza Hotel, the Zanetta House/Plaza Hall, the Plaza Stables, and the newly reopened Castro-Breen Adobe. Many of the interiors are arranged as furnished vignettes or with colorful and informative exhibits that help create a unique learning environment for people of all ages. The park also features a blacksmith shop, the historic jail, and an early American settlers cabin. Tours The park is open Tuesday through Sunday for self guided visits and also offers guided walking tours by advanced reservation. The park is closed on Mondays. Call 831-623-2753 for information.
