St. Francis de Paula Mission
This Mission sits in the middle of the village and was built in 1865 to commerate the battle of Round Mountain where the settlers were fighting with the Apaches. It is one of twenty two missions built around that time scattered throughout California, Arizona and here established under Fr. Junipero Serra.
The front walkways are a riot of color right now with the blooming along both sides leading to the church.
