El Progresso se Combirtió en Historia

Residents Built and Destroyed on this Corner
The first permanent structures here were the adobe apartments for the Mission military families.

In 1856, a wooden Wells Fargo Express Office replaced the adobe ruins. Express mail and the telegraph allowed San Juan Bautista a connection with the rest of America.
The two story Mission Hotel replaced the Express Office in 1908. The great accomodations and cafe made the hotel popular.
In 1938 the State Park removed the Hotel, allowing space for a garden and the relocation of the Settler's Cabin.
