Mural depicting Spanish Mission.  Man stands in front of mural.
Enrique Madrid stands in front of a mural painted on a building in Presidio, Texas that is said to depict Mission de San Antonio de los Puliques, one of early, short-lived Spanish missions built along the Rio Grande near today's Redford, Texas. However, in the background is the distinctive Sierra de la Santa Cruz just southeast of Ojinaga, suggesting the mission shown is the one built at San Cristobal (the Millington site) within today's Presidio. Call it "artistic licence." The rather fanciful scene shows continued local identity with the area's Spanish Colonial heritage. Texas Historical Commission Archives.
