We are in the process of creating a master plan to rebuild the mission based on archaeology and historical research. The first picture shows how it looks now and the other represents a draft of what it will be.
Sadly, we have had to remove trees from the quadrangle. They were not original to the site and were causing much damage to the foundations and archaeological history that is under the earth. It does give a more realistic view of the mission back in the day.
Greenwood and Associates has just completed an excavation of the north wing and its buttresses as well as the west side of the quadrangle. The purpose is to satisfy state requirements that protect historic sites and to prepare for future building. They may have discovered a new design element used in the building of the adobe walls.
The excavation done by Greenwood and Associates on the North Wall ruins has just been completed. The Bechtel Foundation generously donated funding for this excavation. This moves us one step closer to constructing a shelter over the original adobe wall.
