History

Mission Nuestra Señora del Espiritu Santo de Zuñiga was first established in 1722 at the site of La Salle's Fort on Carcitas Creek in Victoria County. It served the Coco, Cujanes, Karankawa, and other tribes.
In 1726 it moved to Mission Valley along the Guadalupe River, serving the Jaranames and Tamiques. The Mission finally relocated to its current site in 1749 still serving the Jaranames and Tamiques.

The Mission was secularized in 1794.

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started because of my love for the California Missions and interest in History. I don't allow paid advertising (but this may change). This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
