The San Jose de los Jemez Mission and Giusewa Pueblo Site in Sandoval County, New Mexico, includes the remains of an early 17th-century mission complex and a Jemez Indian pueblo importantly associated with the Spanish colonial and Native American history of the nation. The Franciscan order led the mission-building activities in New Mexico, assigning to the pueblo Fray Alonso Lugo, one of the five priests accompanying Don Juan de Ooate’s 1598 expedition. In 1621 Fray GerOnimo de Zarate SalmerOn arrived at Giusewa to design and direct the building of an imposing stone church and a large convento. The Indians resisted efforts to abolish their religion and culture, carefully selecting which newly-introduced concepts they would retain. The Franciscans abandoned San Jose de los Jemez about 1639, although the Jemez continued to live there until about 1680, when they joined other pueblo peoples in successfully driving the Spaniards out of New Mexico. The San Jose de los Jemez Mission and Giusewa Pueblo Site was designated a National Historic Landmark on October 16, 2012.
