There is reason to believe it antedates the Governors Palace erected in 1605 as one of the Spanish priests of that time complained that the Franciscan missionaries in their zeal to convert the pagan had built missions for them instead of churches for the Spaniards. During the Pueblo Indian uprising in 1680, the church, together with its early records, was burned. Its walls, however, were left intact and only slight repairs were necessary when the Spaniards returned in 1692. It is still used as a place of worship. The old sanctuary contains old bells, paintings, some of the old hand carved beams, and many interesting and beautiful religious articles of the early Spanish period, which are explained by the sacristan in charge

It is also certain that it was the first mission or church built, as a priest complained that the Franciscans in real real to convert the pagan Indians had neglected a place of worship for the Spaniards. During the Indian Rebellion of 1680 it was burned with all properties and records. The walls remained, so that on the re-conquest by DeVagras in 1692 only slight repairs were required an the original appearance remains to this day.

Authorities differ as to the date of the building of this Mission for the worship of the Pueblo Indians. It is certain that it was built after the Spanish Capitol was removed to Santa Fe in 1605. It is also certain that it was the first mission or church built, as a priest complained that the Franciscans in zeal to convert the pagan Indians had neglected a place of worship for the Spaniards. During the Indian Rebellion of 1680 it was burned with all properties and records. The walls remained, so that on the re-conquest y DeVargas in 1692 only slight repairs were required and the original appearance remains to this day. It is still a place of worship and visited daily under the guidance of an instructive priest.

State Capitol
Title:
State Capitol
Santa Fe New Mexico (NM), Linen unused

Description:
New Mexico, called the "Sunshine State" because of the numerous sunny days, and the "Plateau State," because of the high altitude, is the oldest state in the Union, as it was first seen by Spaniards in 1540, and the newest, being admitted in 1912. With its area of 122,503 square miles. It is the third largest state in the Union, but is one of the smallest with only 400,000 inhabitants. Its abundance of natural resources have scarcely been touched as yet, and Government irrigation projects are rapidly reclaiming the desert stretches. In short, New Mexico is the last of the old West, as Americans with their trains, automobiles and modern buildings, are found side by side with the Indians, native Mexicans, and their burros, adobe houses and ancient agricultural implements.
