(Site Located 10 Miles Southeast)The first mission known to have been established in Texas east of the Pecos River, San Clemente was a hastily built, two-room structure located on a hill about 17 mi. S. of present Ballinger. (Some historians place the site farther south, near Junction.) Although earlier than the Great Spanish Mission Movement, this was one of the first (1684) in Texas and was founded by Juan Dominguez de Mendoza and Fray Nicholas Lopez.
