During a break in today’s BHMA meetings I took a drive south to see the Mission San Xavier Del Bac.  The mission was founded in 1692, and the current church was built between 1783 and 1797.  It is located in the center of a Papagon Indian settlement.  The mission has been constantly maintained and periodically restored, so it’s in beautiful shape.  You can read more about the history of this gorgeous building here.
