San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Texas
Large historic Spanish mission
November 10, 1978: Four Spanish “frontier” missions, part of a colonization system that stretched across the Spanish Southwest in the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s, are preserved as a national park and World Heritage Site. A complex history of interactions between different peoples in Texas, the missions’ influence reshaped cultural heritage and identities for generations.
