Long Description:
Founded June 24,1790, Mission San Juan Bautista, partly destroyed by the earthquakes of 1800 and 1906, was repeatedly restored. The two bells it now uses were salvaged from its original chime. The plaza on its south, surrounded by old adobes, has witnessed many historic scenes, including General Frémont's activities in 1846.

The mission and it's plaza is lousy with plaques but the official California state plaque is nowhere to be seen. The mission is strategically placed in the hills about 1/3 of the way between Monterey and San Jose.
