Additional Details:
Founded in California 1771. The unique architecture of San Gabriel Mission is shown in its flying buttresses, outside stairway and in the bell tower with its several arches built to correspond to the different sizes of the bells. For many years until the Pueblo de Los Angeles built a church, the largest bell was rung two hours before the services to give the settlers ample time to arrive in their oxcarts.
