San Antonio Missions Impact Report

San Antonio Missions Impact Report

The missions of San Antonio play an important part in defining the city’s culture. Their presence also helps drive the city’s hospitality and tourism industry. In 2009, over 1.7 million people visited Missions Concepción, San José, San Juan, and Espada in San Antonio. Collectively, these missions and associated features—including acequias (irrigation canals), labores (farm lands), dam and aqueduct, and the single remaining rancho (mission ranch) —comprise the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. In 2009, park visitors, along with staffing, construction and maintenance activities, and other aspects of park operations, contributed nearly $98.8 million to the local economy and sustained 1,116 jobs in the region.
