Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 15, 1970):
This is an outstanding example of a detailed restoration of a representative mission complex and gardens in an unaltered rural setting. The first mission, founded in 1787, was destroyed by an earthquake in 1812; the present buildings are a reconstruction (1935-42) of a second mission which fell into disrepair after secularization in 1834.

There are no threats to the landmark.

FEMA assistance with patching cracks and repainting resulting from Paso Robles earthquake. Grant assistance and volunteer funding of new visitor center and chapel altar restoration.
