MacMillan, Dianne
January 1996
Missions of the Los Angeles Area;1996, p28
The article focuses on the missions of the Los Angeles, California area. San Gabriel Arcángel, San Buenaventura and San Fernando Rey de España were near the pueblo of Los Angeles, which eventually grew into a bustling city. The neophytes at Mission San Gabriel helped build a church, a barracks for the soldiers, a granary for storing grain and living quarters for the priests. Mission San Fernando was famous for its hides and tallow--products that came from large cattle herds that grazed the mission's lands. INSETS: All in a Day's Work;Untitled;Untitled;Untitled
