The location is very remote. It’s close to the San Antonio River, so water is easily accessible. San Francisco de la Espada, or Mission Espada, is also well known for it’s acequias. An acequia is a type of irrigation system, and Mission Espada is one of the best preserved areas for it’s irrigation systems.

life in the mission
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 weren’t watching the children, women would prepare food and spin wool. Women would also teach the young girls how to be goods wives and mothers.

mission accomplished
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

what s it like today
What’s 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.
