While the nation's forefathers were awaiting response from England in late 1776, Father Junipero Serra founded the Mission Dolores on where present day San Francisco is found. In what was just a simple pueblo of 900 exploded to 20,000 in under a year around the time of the 1948 Gold Rush in California, which solidified San Francisco's place in history. Even with the massive influx of people who moved in San Francisco, the mission remained in its location and today serves the community as an active parish and church. The mission even survived one of San Francisco's worst earthquakes on record, the 1906 earthquake that decimated much of the city, and is the oldest standing structure in San Francisco. Visually Mission Dolores is a stunning example of Spanish Mission style, and the cemetery and surrounding gardens create a beautiful backdrop for the historical building.
