 Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz County California

Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz County, P O and County seat 245 miles from the State capital, is on the north side of the bay of Monterey, occupying a pleasant site, and fronting a harbor safe at most seasons of the year. The place is reached by steamer from San Francisco, or by stage from San Jose on the east. Watsonville on the south-east, and Pescadero on the north-west.

During the summer months, Santa Cruz is one of the favorite watering places of the coast, and is enlivened by the presence of many fashionable visitors. The beach affords the pleasantest open sea bathing on the coast, and fine roads amidst the most lovely and romantic scenery invite the tourists to excursion drives over the neighboring plains and hills. The San Lorenzo River runs through the eastern portion of the town, and is crossed by costly bridges, adding to the picturesqueness of the landscape.

 The town is well built, its hotels, county buildings, business blocks, schools, churches, Odd Fellows' Hall, and private residences, being of a high order, and its prospects of future importance are very encouraging.

Two newspapers are published weekly, the Sentinel and the Local Item, both with a good circulation throughout the county.
