Center for Archaeological Research
In November 1981, Ford, Powell and Carson Architects contracted with the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) to conduct archaeological investigations to determine the possibility of significant subsurface cultural material within the sacristy at Mission San Jose. Four hand excavated units revealed construction materials and architectural details of what may have been the first church on the grounds of the mission and was later converted to a sacristy for the present church, as well as fragmented human remains.
