San Jose, 14th Mission, Founded in 1797

Founded: July 11, 1797 by Father Fermin Lasuen
Named for: Saint Joseph.
Six years after the founding of the thirteenth mission in Soledad Father Lasuen was granted permission to establish an additional 5 missions, which he did in just 13 months. Mission San Jose was the first of these. Father Lasuen’s plan was to locate the missions within one day’s travel of another to be used as a safe rest stop for those traveling along the El Camino Real.
