Parque de San FranciscoEl espacio que ocupa hoy la Plaza de San Francisco
perteneció, desde épocas prehispánicas, al antiguo asentamiento maya de Kin Pech, capital del cacicazgo del
mismo nombre. Por muchos años fue espacio vacío hasta fines del siglo XIX, cuando el Gobierno del Estado estableció una Casa Escuela con el fin de erradicar el analfabetismo, inaugurándola en 1872 y funcionando hasta mediados del siglo XX. A mediados del siglo pasado el gobierno de José Ortiz Ávila
construyó en su lugar una escuela mucho más moderna, pero en 1973 el gobierno la reubicó en terrenos ganados al mar, y en su lugar en el año de 1978 se construyó el parque actual. English:San Francisco ParkIn pre-Hispanic times, the space now occupied by the San Francisco Plaza belonged to the ancient Mayan settlement of Kin Pech, capital the chieftainship of the same name. For many years this was empty space until the end of the 19th century when the State Government established a schoolhouse with the aim of eradicating illiteracy. The schoolhouse was inaugurated in 1872 and worked as such until the middle of the 20th century. At that time, the government of José Ortiz Ávila replaced it with a much more modern school, but in 1973 the government relocated the school on land reclaimed from the sea, and
the current park was built in its place in 1978.
