History

Today you can visit five Missions in San Antonio, but there once was a sixth mission, now almost forgotten. Mission San Francisco Xavier de Nájera was established in 1722 at the request of the chief of a band of Rancheria Grande natives who had guided an expedition to reopen the Missions of East Texas. Marquis de San Miguel de Aguayo, the governor of Spanish Texas, had promised to establish a mission along the San Antonio River for the tribe. Mission San Francisco Xavier de Nájera was three miles south of San Antonio de Valero. Originally serving fifty families, by 1726 the Mission had closed as the people moved away. The lands were turned over to Mission Nuestra Señ:ora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuña.

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.
