Mission San José

Mission San José was founded on Jun. 11, 1797 (222 years ago) on a site located in the "Mission San Jose District" of Fremont, California (formerly an independent town, a spot that the natives called Oroysom or Orisom) in the "Valley of San José." The settlement was the site of the first Ceasarian section childbirth in Alta California. The Mission entered a long period of gradual decline after secularization in 1834 (185 years ago), though numerous restoration efforts in the intervening periods have reconstructed many of the original structures. The original padre's quarters are now a small museum; Saint Joseph's Church at the Mission San José is today a local parish church of the [[Roman Catholic Diocese of Oakland (Diocese of Oakland).The church has a regular schdule and also has a visitors' center, museum (open daily) and slide show telling the history of the mission. In the early part of the 1900 (119 years ago) a sign was erected on the roof of the museum which read "Mission San Jose de Guadalupe" (in reference to el pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, the first civic settlement in Alta California, founded in 1777 (242 years ago) ). Regrettably, this misnomer is often used by authors and even government agencies to this day when referring to the installation.
