Mission Soledad, a small remote mission, deteriorated rapidly after it was secularized in 1835. For almost a century, Mission Soledad’s principal attractions were the picturesque ruins on the site. Mission Soledad was abandoned for almost 100 years.Soledad’s simple chapel (originally built in 1832) was restored by the Daughters of the Golden West in 1954. The convento wing (present day museum) was added in 1965. The mission church is considered a chapel of Our Lady of Solitude Catholic Church in the town of Soledad.You can even find a time to attend Mass.
