Kings Highway Camino Real
Marker Text: Old San Antonio Road. Marked by the Daughters of the American Revolution and the State of Texas A.D. 1918
Kings Highway Camino Real Marker
Kings Highway Marker No: 24
Location: The marker is next to a state historical marker for Mission Santissimo Nombre de Maria, the second Spanish mission in east Texas. This mission stood for only a year plus a few months before being destroyed in a flood in January 1692. Its exact location is unknown. The plaque on the historical marker for the mission bears a date of 1934. This was about the same time that this section of Highway 21 was built, so the OSR marker may have been placed here at the same time.
