The City of San Juan Bautista

This week, I shall be taking you over to San Juan Bautista, which is just a short hop from Highway 25, heading west on Highway 156.

San Juan Bautista is about 7 miles west of Hollister. It is the second largest city in San Benito County with a population of about 1,400. The city was incorporated in 1869, but its history goes back to the founding of Mission San Juan Bautista  in 1797. Before the Spanish missionaries entered San Juan Valley, in 1769, the Amah Mutson  people lived in the area.
