Description

Mission San Jose is the fourteenth of the 21 Spanish Missions in Alta California. They were founded to secure Spain's claim to this land and to teach the native people Christianity and the Spanish way of life. Mission San Jose was founded on June 11, 1797 by Father Fermin Francisco de Lasuen on a site which was part of a natural highway by way of the Livermore Valley to the San Joaquin Valley.

Although Mission San Jose was founded long ago, we cannot forget that before this was Mission San Jose, it was the Ohlone Village of Oroysom. The Ohlone people lived, loved, labored, and died on this most sacred land. The Ohlones are still present today. Their culture, language, and spirit live on in their descendants. Also present today are many new cultures and languages, each contributing to the diverse community in which we live.
