Arroyo de San Joseph
California State Historic Landmark 800
#800 Arroyo de San Joseph Cupertino
This arroyo honoring San Joseph, patron saint of flight and students, was first discovered and traversed by Spanish explorers in 1769. On March 25-26, 1776 Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza made it his encampment no. 93, as mapped by his cartographer Padre Pedro Font, before continuing on to the San Francisco bay area, where he initiated steps to found a colony, a mission and a presidio.
