The historic Rispin Mansion is located beside Soquel Creek in the City of Capitola, Santa Cruz County, California. Built between 1919 and 1921, the 22-room home was built by developer Henry Allen Rispin and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Rispin had a profound effect on Capitola during the 1920s. He invested vast sums of his own money as well as that of stockholders to improve the town and sell real estate, but sales were disappointing. Rispin had lost his investments to creditors by the end of the decade. This website tells the story of the Rispin family and the Rispin era in Capitola History.
This website was created by the Capitola Historical Museum and is intended as a resource for people interested in the Rispin Mansion and
Capitola during the 1920s.
