In April 1998, a hand-dug trench was excavated outside the parish offices of Mission San Francisco de la Espada to place below-ground electrical conduit. Due to the historic importance of the mission site, personnel from the Center for Archaeological Research of The University of Texas at San Antonio monitored the digging of this trench. The remains of a possible Colonial-period wall were uncovered outside the southern end of the building. Plans were made to run the electrical conduit above ground in that area, in order to avoid damaging the historic structure.
