Our City, Our History: Missions play huge part in San Antonio's history

SBG San Antonio

This year marks San Antonio's 300th birthday.

Fox San Antonio's Ryan Wolf gives you a brief look at the important part the old Spanish Missions play in San Antonio history.

The year 1718 would forever change history. It's when San Antonio was established.

Fast forward to 2015, the old Spanish Missions received a special designation from UNESCO, granting them the title of World Heritage Site. The honor put San Antonio on the world stage, emphasizing yet again, the importance of the Missions.

Being close to 300 years old, the Missions need a lot of upkeep.
