5909. Mission La Purisima Conception, California, Founded 1787
La Purisima Concepcion. La Purisima Concepcion, at Lompoc, Santa Barbara County, was founded December 8, 17887, and was the eleventh Mission established. "Poor Purisima! Near the river Santa Inés, clustered around by pretty hills, adversity seemed to claim it for its own. Almost totally destroyed by the earthquake of 1812, rebuilt, seized, and again greatly damaged by Indians in 1824, now in ruins, deserted, and alone, it silently awaits its inevitable end."
