1513 Moment - Mission San Francisco

Two centuries before the Franciscans founded missions in California, the first mission chains were established along the northern Florida Atlantic coast and the Georgia coastal islands. In 1606, Spaniards spread into the Timucua territory of the Potano Indians and established Mission San Francisco de Potano. This was the first use of the name "San Francisco" in the land that would become the United States.
