Father Fermin Lasuen assissted in building the gorgeous Mission Santa Barbara. Mission Santa Barbara is the only mission that has two matching bell towers. In 1835, Mission Santa Barbara was secularized and the mission's land was divided up among the communty. Later on it became a Franciscan priest training school.

Mission San Miguel Arcangel was built by Father Pedro Cambon. The padres who helped maket this mission put two fountains in the mission, one for the workers and one was for the visitors. Close by the workers area the padres put in a beautiful pepper tree which is now called "Mother of the Pepper Trees" because it was the first pepper tree ever planted.

Mission San Fernando was founded by Fran Lausen, and named after King Fernando (King of Spain). Famous for it's excellent wine, Mission San Fernando produced 2,000 gallons of wine a year. Mission San Fernando's end was a horrible time. They ran out of money to support the mission and later on an earthquake destroyed the entire church.

Mission San Fransisco Solano was founded by Fray Altimira in 1823. Mission San Fransisco is the last of the 21 Missions of California. There was no bell tower so one bell hung from a wooden frame in the front of the church. Fray Altimiria was an evil man and would beat the natives when they disobeyed. The natives destroyed the mission and forced out Fray. He was replaced by Father Fortuni who rebuild the mission. An earthquake later damaged the mission but state funding provided the rebuilding from 1911-1913
