Goliad, Texas

Mission Espiritu Santo

Presidio La Bahia

We had a fun day in Goliad, Texas. It a great historic Texas town. Very near by is the old Mission Espiritu Santos. It has been included in a Texas State park and beautifully restored. It was built in the 1700's. It's amazing how well all of those old mission buildings hold up.

Just a little ways down the road is the Presidio La Bahia. The Declaration of Texas Independence was signed on the altar of the chapel. The chapel is beautiful and has been in constant use since the mid-1700s.

Then in honor of the day studying wars between Texans and Mexicans... we went out for Mexican food :-)
