Mission San Gabriel Arcangel

Mission San Gabriel Arcangel

Quilt design and images copyright by Susan Plack, 1998

Mission San Gabriel Archangel was the 4th California Mission founded.  The current site was the third site chosen for the mission.  Construction began on the current mission in 1796.  It became the wealthiest of all of the early missions.  The mission differs from the others in that its architectural style comes from the Cathedral of Cordova in Spain. Today San Gabriel is the host to what may be the finest collection of mission artifacts in California.
