Wooden Beams

Built between 1610 and 1625, the San Miguel Mission is the oldest church in the United States. Much of the original structure (particularly, the adobe walls) which was completed by Tlaxcalan Indians, remains. The wooden statue of Saint Michael dates back to the 1700's. The church, which still holds concerts and masses, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1968.
