Founded by Jesuit Father Eusebio Francisco Kino in January 1691, Mission San Cayetano de Tumacácori was the first mission to be located in what is now Arizona, and was part of the global Spanish mission system of colonization that attempted to create a self-sufficient agricultural community, convert local Indians to the Catholic religion, and generate revenue for Spain. Originally located on the east side of the Santa Cruz River, the mission moved, following the Pima Revolt in 1751, to its present location on the west side of the river. The mission was then rechristened San José de Tumacácori.
