This painting is of the Mission Espiritu Santo, Goliad, TX. Established by Spanish missionaries in 1722, Mission Espiritu Santo was originally located near Matagorda Bay on the Texas coast. In 1749, the mission was moved to its present-day location, where it continued for over a century. In 1886, a severe hurricane destroyed virtually the entire mission. Reconstruction efforts began in the 1930s with the Civilian Conservation Corps, giving Mission Espiritu Santo and nearby Presidio La Bahia new life.
Today, Mission Espiritu Santo is part of 187-acre Goliad State Historical Park.
