I thought I would give you a history lesson on the San Juan Bautista mission that we had the opportunity to visit.
1797- San Juan Bautista mission established.
1803- First cornerstone of the present church was laid. This is a picture of the chapel. It was so beautiful and Majestic. It is still a working chapel and they do weddings and mass in it.
When they made the tile they would leave them out to dry and animals would walk on them. They would still use the tile.
There is a cemetery next to the church that holds over 4000 Native Americans and Europeans. Not sure how they fit them all there.
2016- In what would be a culmination of all the history at this mission the Johnson family visits. Marisa took about quiniento (for those of you that don’t speak Spanish that is 5 cientos) pictures of the beautiful doors and arches and our kids in front of them.
