Mission San Rafael Arcangel
California State Historic Landmark 220
#220 San Rafael Arcangel Mission
One and a half miles southwest was the San Rafael Arcangel Mission, established
in 1817 by the Franciscans. This was the twentieth in the chain of 21 California missions. After
the "decree of secularization" in 1834, the buildings gradually fell into ruin. Reconstruction of
the mission on the original site took place in 1949.
5th Ave and A St, San Rafael; plaque is at NE corner of Merrydale and Southbound US 101 San Pedro Rd offramp.
