Since this is a mission template, having the term mission in front of each name seams duplicative and bulks up the size of the box. I'm goig to move this back to the edit I made yesterday. --evrik (talk) 23:37, 21 November 2006 (UTC)


I think it would be good to add the presidios (like the one in San Fransisco and Santa Barbara). 23:20, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

  • They should be given their own template and placed on those particualr article pages, if desired. Mdhennessey 21:32, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Pueblo church[edit]

Los Angeles was a pueblo (civic town), founded by decree/land grant of the Kind of Spain, it was not founded as a mission. The template should be adjusted to reflect that. --evrik (talk) 03:25, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

  • The template deals only with missions and related facilities, not pueblos, therefore no change is necessary. Mdhennessey 07:50, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
