Map 1: Mission sites and rivers in Texas. [Map 1]

(Adapted from Missions Education Committee, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park: A Guidebook, San Antonio Junior League of San Antonio, 1986)

1. Examine the location of the missions. What do their locations have in common? Why do you think that this was important?

2. Compare the dates of the first established mission, presidio (military town or encampment), and village with the dates of the first mission in the San Antonio River area. Why do you think the later missions were built in a more central part of Texas?
