Mission San Francisco De La Espada

 

Mission San Francisco De La Espada was founded in 1690 as San Francisco de los Tejas near present-day Weches, Texas. Mission Espada was the first mission in Texas and eventually transferred to the San Antonio River area in 1731 and renamed Mission San Francisco de la Espada. Completed in 1756, Mission Espada is now preserved by the National Park Service and open to visitors year round for the betterment and education of future generations.
