The Landmark Project: CHL# 195

CHL# 195 MISSION SAN JUAN BAUTISTA AND PLAZA

Founded June 24,1790, Mission San Juan Bautista, partly destroyed by the earthquakes of 1800 and 1906, was repeatedly restored. The two bells it now uses were salvaged from its original chime. The plaza on its south, surrounded by old adobes, has witnessed many historic scenes, including General Frémont’s activities in 1846.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
