Mission Santa Ines is one of the best preserved Spanish mission complexes in the United States, an unrivaled combination of landscape setting, original buildings, extant collections of art and interior furnishings, water-related industrial structures and archaeological remains. The property is also important as the location of the start of the Chumash Revolt of 1824, one of the largest and most successful revolts of Native American Catholic neophytes in the Spanish West, representing indigenous resistance to European colonization. The intact archaeological remains of the two mission wings, a portion of the convento, and the Native American village are rare survivors, and have been demonstrated to contain the potential for exceptional information on the critical period of accommodation between native peoples and European colonial powers.
