Kids at the missions had many chores. These included carding wool, gathering food rations, preparing meals, cleaning up, feeding livestock, and looking after the younger ones.
The people who lived in the mission walls would have used a chamber pot or a bucket for their bathroom. When they were done, children would empty the bucket by dumping it right outside of their door. Yuck!
People have been living along the San Antonio River for even longer. We believe that Indigenous people have been living along this river for about 10,000 years!
