One of the Finest Specimens of Ancient Carving Extent


San Jose Second Mission. Built 1718.
San Antonio, Texas

This was the second of several Missions named after St. Joseph, built in 1718 by the Franciscan Monks, and was used in converting the Indians. It was also used as a place of refuge from hostile Indians. The hand carving on the facade of the main entrance is conceded by Experts to be one of the finest specimens of ancient carving extent.

Dear Martha,

There's been landscaping & restoration since this card was published, and urbanization nearby, but it's still worth a visit.
