History

The decision was made in 1729 to remove the presidio, Nuestra Seńora de los Dolores de los Tejas, which had been providing protection to the Missions in East Texas. The Spanish government wanted to cut expenses and felt that the local people were peaceful. The missionaries of the Franciscan college of Querétero were unsuccessful in opposing the action and in July 1730 moved their three Missions (La Purísima Concepción, San Francisco de los Neches and San José de los Nazonis) to Austin, near Barton Springs along the Colorado River.

Near Douglass, Texas.

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.
