Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1132
Building/structure dates: 1797 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1868 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1860 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1833 subsequent work
Significance: Restored remains of Fourteenth Mission founded by Franciscan Fathers in Alta, California. Site consecrated June 11, 1797. Church and most of the buildings were destroyed by earthquake on Oct. 21, 1868, leaving part of monastery wing which is now a museum. Building is a good example of original adobe and post and lintel construction, with hand hewn timbers, pegged and lashed with rawhide. Museum contains original statues, paintings and liturgical vestments and artifacts. The Mission was the first community and cultural center in the Contra Costa, and was on the northern frontier of Spanish expansion in North America. More Indians were baptized here than at any other mission, and next to Mission San Luis, Rey de Francia it was considered the most prosperous of the missions.
