History

Mission San Juan Bautista was founded on St. John's Day, June 24, 1699, on the Río de Sabinas, 25 miles north of Lampazos, Nuevo León, Mexico. It served 150 Indians of different Coahuiltecan bands. After only 5 months, it was moved and reestablished at present-day Guerrero, Coahuila on January 1, 1700.

Among the Native people served by the mission were the Ervipiame.[2]

In 1703 a Presidio was established at San Juan Bautista.
