mission san francisco de asis

Mission San Francisco de Asís, or Mission Dolores, is the oldest surviving structure in San Francisco and the sixth religious settlement established as part of the California chain of missions. The Mission was founded on June 29, 1776, by Lieutenant José Joaquin Moraga and Father Francisco Palóu (a companion of Father Junipero Serra), both members of the de Anza Expedition, which had been charged with bringing Spanish settlers to Alta (upper) California, and evangelizing the local Natives, the Ohlone.(source)

One could do worse than to only visit the missions of California for the rest of one’s life! Founded on June 29, 1776, makes this very old for America. AMAZING! I’d love to visit it one day.
