widespread in Spain in the 1700s" said Brooke Bonorden, site
educator/interpreter at Mission Dolores State Historic Site. "We hope you
will join us for an afternoon of festive fun!"

Augustine County, just 20 miles west of the Texas-Louisiana border. The site
tells an important history about the Native American experience with Texas'
earliest European settlers. Visitors can explore the site's history at the
museum, where interpretive displays tell the story of Mission Dolores. The
property also has a campground, picnic area, and group pavilions.
