SANTA CATARINA


This spring was named by Captain Juan Bautista de Anza when his overland exploration party camped here on March 14, 1774, on the journey that opened the Anza Trail from Sonora into Alta California. Anza’s colonizing expedition of 1775, consisting of 240 persons and over 800 head of livestock, camped here the night of December 23.
