Santa Rita — Former Unincorporated community — Coordinates: Coordinates: Country United States State California County Monterey County Elevation 79 ft (24 m)
Santa Rita (formerly, New Republic, Sotoville, and Pinecate) was an unincorporated community in Monterey County, California. It was located 3.5 miles (5.6 km) north of Salinas, at an elevation of 79 feet (24 m).
Jose Manuel Soto bought the Santa Rita land grant and allocated 1 square mile (2.6 km2) for a town he named New Republic. The New Republic post office opened in 1870 and changed its name to Santa Rita in 1874, and closed for good in 1907. The town was also called Pinecate from nearby Pinecate Peak, and Sotoville in honor of Soto.
Santa Rita was annexed by Salinas in 1975.
