Selecting this site because of the great number of Salinan Indians that living hereabout, Fray Fermín Francisco de Lasuén, O.F.M., second president of the California missions, founded San Miguel Arcángel on July 25, 1797. The sixteenth in a chain of twenty-one Franciscan missions, its influence has played not only upon the native population, but the history of California as a whole.
