Mission San Francisco De Asis

Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 31 December 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

I'm back: Mission San Francisco De Asis, the sixth mission, was founded on June 29, 1776, just five days before the Declaration on Independence was signed (July 4, 1776). The mission is also known as Mission Dolores and is the oldest building still standing in San Francisco. The Christianized Native Americans built this church so well that it withstood the famous 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The Basilica, the new mission church just to the right of the Old Mission, was completed in 1918.
