dc.descriptionInterior, original 780-pound, thick-walled church bell with inscription to St. Joseph (the San Jose Bell) and date of 1856; A Spanish colonial mission church in Santa Fe. Built between approximately 1610 and 1626, it is claimed to be the oldest church in the United States. The church was damaged during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 but was rebuilt in 1710 following the Spanish reconquest and served for a time as a chapel for the Spanish soldiers. The wooden reredos, which includes a wooden statue of Saint Michael dating back to at least 1709, was added in 1798. Sunday mass is still held at the chapel. Part of the Barrio de Analco Historic District. Source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (accessed 9/6/2015)en_US
