GSHA-SC would like to announce the tour event:
Saturday, June 10
10:00 am to 12:30 pm
Historical Society of Southern California tour and talk. HSSC will tour two sites in San Gabriel’s historic mission district: San Gabriel Mission and La Casa de Lopez de Lowther Adobe. Founded by Spanish Franciscan missionaries in 1781, San Gabriel Mission remains one of the best preserved missions in California. The church built in 1805 is the oldest functioning Catholic church in the archdioceses and continues to serve as a parish church for the city of San Gabriel. Also dating from the early 1800s is La Casa de Lopez de Lowther, part of the mission complex. Juan Lopez moved into the home in 1849, and members of his family lived there until 1964. La Casa de Lopez de Lowther is usually closed to the public, but during this event the tour group will be allowed to enter. HSSC tour tickets. San Gabriel Mission, 428 S Mission Dr, San Gabriel, CA 91776. Cost: $15 for members of HSSC, $25 for non-members.
