Mission San Fernando Rey de Espaa

Updated on January 10, 2009

Mission of the Valley

Founded September 8, 1797. The padres sought a location for another mission to relieve the long journey between San Gabriel and San Buenaventura. The most desirable spot was already claimed by Francisco Reyes, the mayor of the Los Angeles pueblo. He relinquished his claim, probably gracefully, was a patron at the formal dedication, and was godfather of the first child baptized. (Text and image from California Mission History.)

More information on Mission San Fernando Rey de Espana

Mission San Fernando Rey de España was founded on September 8, 1797 by Father Fermín Lasuén, making it the fourth mission site he had established in as many months. The prime location the padre selected, located along the principal highway leading to the Pueblo de Los Angeles, had been occupied by Francisco Reyes (then Los Angeles' mayor). However, after brief negotiations construction of the first buildings was soon underway (Mission records list Reyes as godfather to the first infant baptized at San Fernando).

      [in reply to genesis] I'm not entirely sure what you're referring to but in 1971, an earthquake damaged the mission and the entire building had to be rebuilt. I would imagine that the mission was closed during this period.
