Located just east of Hwy. 1, 4 mi. south of Half Moon Bay.
The town of Purissima existed just south of Spanishtown (now Half Moon Bay) in the 1800s. It was once thought that Purissima would become the most important town on the San Mateo County coast. But after the town lost several of it's patriarchs, it just could not compete comercially with Spanishtown which was in an easier to reach location. By 1930, Purissima was all but abandoned. In 1868, John Purcell had deeded the town this cemetery with it's lovely ocean view. The abandoned cemetery and the remnants of a schoolhouse are all that's left of Purissima.
