About Mission San Luis
Mission San Luis de Apalachee (MSL) was the western capital of La Florida from 1656 to 1704 and its historic location was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1960. The property was purchased by the State of Florida in 1983. After nearly three decades of historical and archaeological research, Mission San Luis is one of the premier Native American and Spanish history sites. Archaeological excavations of the site along with historical research have allowed the state of Florida to reconstruct several of the mission’s buildings. Today, it is the only reconstructed mission in the Southeast that is open to the public to explore.
