Misión San Antonio de Padua
(Turn Off 5 Miles North)

Located in the valley of the San Antonio River within the Santa Lucia Range, Misión San Antonio de Padua, established on July 14, 1771, was the third in a series of missions founded in Alta California by Father Junípero Serra. Its picturesque setting makes it one of today's most outstanding examples of early mission life.

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 232
Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with the California Historical Landmarks Advisory Committee, and the Department of Public Works.

This California historical landmark plaque is unusual. It is the only one that I can recall which does not show the date that it was dedicated.

Another Califirnia plaque for Mission San Antonio de Padua is located north of here just off US 101 at the Jolon exit. The mission is also National Register of Historic Places listing #76000504.
