Additional Details:
This was the second of several Missions named after St. Joseph, built in 1718 by the Franciscan Monks, and was used in converting the Indians. It was also used as a place of refuge from hostile Indians. The hand carving on the fa├žade of the main entrance is conceded by experts to be one of the finest specimens of ancient carving extant.
