A Historical View of the San Antonio Missions
Shortly before 1967, the Archbishop of San Antonio undertook an extensive program to improve Mission San Juan prior to HemisFair '68, the World's Fair held in San Antonio in 1968. Archaeological excavations resulted in a very good on–site display of artifacts from the mission grounds.
