The plaque says, "Jesuits

• Founded 19 missions in Baja California over a 70 year period.
• Nuestra Señora de Loreto de Conchó (1697) was the first permanent Jesuit mission, founded by Father Juan Ma. de Salvatierra.
• The Jesuits were influential in shaping the development of the Baja California peninsula by evangelizing and introducing cultural practices. The fathers changed the lives of the indigenous people, creating an economic system that helped sustain the missions.


Father Eusebio Kino - He was the first to convince the Spanish authorities to evangelize and colonize the Baja California peninsula.
Father Juan Ma. de Salvatierra - His faith inspired the missionaries to establish the first missions and towns in the Baja California peninsula.
Father Juan de Ugarte - Is recognized by historians as a pillar in the development of the Californias and the 'Father of Agriculture'. He brought and spread the practices of agriculture, livestock breeding, construction and textiles to the Californias."
