Protection: Land ownership transfer

In an effort to retain the serenity of Mission Concepción’s site, the Mission Heritage Partners helped facilitate a plan to ensure that the land between the Mission and the San Antonio River would not be commercially developed. The area was already targeted by several developers, so an individual board member purchased the land and eventually transferred ownership to the nonprofit group and then to the National Park. The views between the river and the Mission can now remain as they were in the 1700s, without fear of future encroachment.
