Hobbico #HCAHCAY9034. This is the San Juan Capistrano Missions of California Educational Project. Parental Supervision is Recommended.:. The seventh mission, San Juan Capistrano was founded on November 1, 1776, by Father Junipero Serra. Famous for beautiful gardens, it's the spring home for thousands of swallows that annually migrate from their winter homes in Central America. A small chapel completed in the first year is now the oldest California building still in use - and the only church still standing where Father Serra is known to have said Mass. A large stone church completed in 1806 was destroyed in the 1812 earthquake and never rebuilt. After secularization, the mission lay near ruin. Father John O'Sulliv

Hobbico #HCAHCAY9023. This is the Nuestra Senora de la Soledad Missions of California Educational Project. Parental Supervision is Recommended.:. Its solitary location in the Salinas River Valley led padres to name this 13th mission Nuestra Senora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude). Founded on October 9, 1791, its purpose was to facilitate travel between Mission San Carlos de Borromeo de Carmelo and Mission San Antonio de Padua. Floodwaters destroyed Nuestra Senora de la Soledad three times. Cold winters and grueling summers took their toll on the 30 priests who served there over its 44 years in operation. Like most other missions, it then lapsed into disrepair and ruin. Restoration was begun in the 1950s by a

Hobbico #HCAHCAY9027. This is the San Diego de Alcala Missions of California Educational Project. Parental Supervision is Recommended.:. Known as the Mother of the Missions, Mission San Diego de Alcala was founded July 16, 1769, by Father Junipero Serra. It was the first of the 21 missions and California's first church. Several hundred Indians attacked the mission in 1775, killing a priest and burning the church. Realizing they could not compete with Spanish guns, the Indians eventually cooperated with the padres in rebuilding. By 1797 the mission had 50,000 acres of land with a variety of crops and 32,000 head of livestock. For 12 years after secularization, the mission was used by the U.S. Army to stable horses

Hobbico #HCAHCAY9035. This is the San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Missions of California Educational Project. Parental Supervision is Recommended.:. Originally a humble log chapel, San Luis Obispo de Tolosa was founded fifth in the mission chain by Father Junipero Serra on September 1, 1772. On three occasions, flaming Indian arrows burned its thatched roofs. Determined padres replaced them with roofs of rounded, red clay tiles - introducing a trademark of California architecture. San Luis Obispo's location in the well-watered Valley of the Bears boasted such a large bear population that the Spanish were able to prevent other missions from starvation by sending them bear meat. In the 1930s the mission underwent extensi

Hobbico #HCAHCAY9031. This is the San Gabriel Arcangel Missions of California Educational Project. Parental Supervision is Recommended.:. Mission San Gabriel Arcangel was founded September 8, 1771, by Father Junipero Serra. Fourth in the mission chain, it offers a unique, fortress-like design. The mission thrived, with large herds of cattle providing the means for tallow-rendering, soap-making and tanning hides. The native Gabrielino Indians were skilled wine makers, producing as much as 50,000 gallons annually. In 1811, San Gabriel reaped one of the largest wheat crops ever recorded by the mission chain. Care continued to a smaller degree after secularization. Some Native Americans remained and a priest visited
