6 Reason for the Mission To change the culture of the Native population and introduce and convert them to the Christian religion. It was also to make them Spanish citizens. Back to Museum

7 Why the Location they Chose? The location is very remote. Its close to the San Antonio River, so water is easily accessible. San Francisco de la Espada, or Mission Espada, is also well known for its acequias. An acequia is a type of irrigation system, and Mission Espada is one of the best preserved areas for its irrigation systems. Back to Museum

8 Who did they Serve? San Francisco de la Espada served to introduce the Native Texans to the Spanish society. Back to Museum

9 Life in the Mission Men in the mission would make or repair equipment. They would also help build the mission. Boys would work as apprentices for carpenters, blacksmiths, masons, etc. The older men in the community would make or repair weapons, such as arrows. When they werent watching the children, women would prepare food and spin wool. Women would also teach the young girls how to be goods wives and mothers. Back to Museum

10 Mission Accomplished? In 1794 the Espada mission became impoverish. Only 15 families remained and they each got land, but since there was so little supplies, they had to share. In 1826, the Commanches raided the Mission, ruining crops and killing livestock. Still, families continued to live there. Back to Museum

11 Credits

12 Whats it like Today? Today, Mission Espada still operates as an actual museum. It is open to the public on weekdays to view. Mission Espada is still very much involved in the Catholic church. The San Antonio Missions National Park maintains the grounds regularly. Back to Museum
