ITS is the proud sponsor of the Villa de Branciforte Preservation Society and their good works; Seeking recognition and preservation of the unique character and history of the Villa de Branciforte area in Santa Cruz. Founded in 1797, Villa de Branciforte is a unique occurrence in Spanish Colonial history. Unlike the Spanish missions, the Villa was secular, and unlike the other two original secular settlements, the pueblos of Los Angeles and San Jose, Branciforte was a "villa," the only villa to be created during the Spanish Colonial era in California.
