How did they get water to the fountain in the front of the San Miguel mission?
I am doing a report on the San Miguel mission but I can't find out how it got water to the fountain in front of the mission and what its nickname was. Get back to fast!
Dear “Get Back to me Fast”
The full name of the mission is San Miguel Arcangel. The only “nickname” or shortened version that is in general use is Mission San Miguel.
The missions were all located near water (typically small streams). They built dams and reservoirs to collect the water and a system for bring the water to the mission.
The fountain in the front of San Miguel was added in 20th century.
