Description
Notes Chamberlain on page 433 of In a Modern Rendering: The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann the San Miguel church 'was built by Don Pedro Peralta, governor of New Mexico between 1609 and 1613, as a chapel for the Tlaxcala Indians. Historians throw doubt on the boastful claims that San Miguel is the oldest church in the United States. Having, however, been destroyed and rebuilt numerous times in its history, San Miguel does have a colorful history.'
