Fodor's Review

The St. Ignatius Mission—a church, cabin, and collection of other buildings—was built in the 1890s with bricks made of local clay by missionaries and Native Americans. The 61 murals on the walls and ceilings of the church were used to teach Bible stories to the Indians. In the St. Ignatius Mission Museum (an old log cabin) there's an exhibit of early artifacts and arts and crafts. The mission is still a functioning church; Mass is offered every Sunday morning in the

rectory. To reach the mission from St. Ignatius, take Main Street south to Mission Drive.
