Central Coast Spotlight: Holy City

November 9, 2018

On the Old Santa Cruz Highway, there once was a roadside attraction that had a restaurant, a zoo, big wooden Santa statues, a soda shop, and a telescope to look at the moon. It was owned by cult leader, William Riker. He managed to get hundreds of followers to give him all their money and live in shacks in the woods. He called this place Holy City.
