Early California Landscapes and Gardens:

Romance and Reality

Lompoc, home of Mission La Purísima Concepción 

Friday, October 4-Sunday, October 6, 2019


This fall's CGLHS Annual Conference will focus on the landscapes of early California, telling the story of the Missions and the early agricultural practices of the region. We will explore the authentic history of the pre-Spanish era and post-Spanish settlements, along with the myth-making reinvention in the 19th century of these working landscapes as idyllic places of pastoral enchantment. We will also look at the late 20th century cultural shift to a more authentic telling of these stories.
