Mission San Jose

2200 Roosevelt Ave., San Antonio, Texas

Founded in 1720, today it is the most well restored of the San Antonio missions and serves as the headquarters for the entire historical park.
In 1777 Fray Juan Morfi of Spain wrote upon seeing San Jose: "It is in truth the first mission in America, not in point of time, but in point of beauty, plan, and strength, so that there is not a presidio along the entire frontier line that can compare with it."
