West Coast Gazetteer & Directory ~ Santa Cruz, California

Santa Cruz County, county seat and incorporated city of about 4,000 inhabitants, is situated on the north side of the bay of Monterey, 70 miles by water and 80 miles by land south-east of San Francisco. The town is built on the site of the old mission established in 1791, from which it derives its name. The view from the high ground overlooking the city is romantic and picturesque, on one side is seen the mountains towering in scenic grandeur, while on the other is seen the sandy beach stretching out and meeting in easy slope the waves rolling in from the watery expanse which reflects in shimmering silver the beaming rays of the sun. The city is well laid out with wide streets, and the neat and attractive residences, with gardens filled with flowers of various hues, give it an attractive appearance. In the business portion of the city about one-half of the buildings are of brick, a number of which are substantial and handsome edifices. It is a favorite watering place and summer resort. The beach is one of the finest on the coast, and in the summer season presents an animated appearance with its hundreds of bathers sporting in the foamy surf. The climate is mild, and the atmosphere is of that balmy softness experienced only by the admixture of sea and mountain air.

As a manufacturing place it is considered one of the most important in the State. The principal industries in this line are the manufacture of lumber, lime, leather, and powder. Farming and dairying are also carried on to a considerable extent in the surrounding country. Four public schools arc maintained, having an average attendance of about five hundred scholars. The secret and benevolent societies organized are Masons, Odd Fellows, United Workmen, Knights of Honor, American Legion of Honor, Chosen Friends, Red Men, Good Templars, Sons of Temperance, and Ancient Order of Druids.

The churches represented are the Baptist, Episcopal, Methodist, Congregational, Christian, Latter Day Saints, and Roman Catholic. The current news is chronicled by three weekly newspapers, the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Courier Item, and California Transcript. The Santa Cruz Gas Co. furnishes the city with gaslight, and the Santa Cruz Water Co. supplies the thirst-quenching fluid of nature. The fire department consists of a Hook and Ladder Co. and two Hose Cos.

Communication is maintained with San Francisco by the South Pacific Coast R. R., also by rail to Pajaro, and stage to Santa Clara, connecting with the trains of the Southern Pacific, and weekly by steamers of the Pacific Coast Steamship Co.

Officers, J. D. Chace, Mayor; F. D. Scott, L. Schwartz, L. W. Scott, Wallace Dyer, Councilmen; William H. Bliss, Clerk and Assessor; P. R. Hinds, Treasurer and Tax Collector.
