Regarding Mission Santa Inéz. This site is a California Registered Historical Landmark (No. 305)
This mission was founded in 1804 by Father Estévan Tapís to reach the Indians living east of the Coast Range. Construction was completed in 1817. It was through the efforts of Father Alexander Buckler, starting in 1904, that Mission Santa Inés was restored to as much as possible of its old charm and grace.

1. National Historic Landmark - Statement of Significance (as of designation-January 20, 1999)
Mission Santa Ines is one of the best preserved Spanish mission complexes in the United States, an unrivaled combination of landscape setting, original buildings, extant collections of art and interior furnishings, water-related industrial structures and archaeological remains. The property is also important as the location of the start of the Chumash Revolt of 1824, one of the largest and most successful revolts of Native American Catholic neophytes in the Spanish West, representing indigenous resistance to European colonization. The intact archaeological remains of the two mission wings, a portion of the convento, and the Native American village are rare survivors, and have been demonstrated to contain the potential for exceptional information on the critical period of accommodation between native peoples and European colonial powers.
