    Mission DoloresMission Dolores San Francisco, California
    the Mission San Francisco de Asis or Mission Dolores is the oldest surviving building in the city and the sixth religious settlement that had been started by Friar Junipero Serra to become part of the California chain of missions, but this one would be founded in 1776, by Lt. Jose Joaquin Morage and the friar Francisco Palou who was a companion of Serra's, and members of the de Anza expedition that would bring Spanish settlers to the Alta or upper California region, evangelizing the native populations, the Ohlone. The small village would be named after St. Francis of Assisi, who started the Franciscan Order and was also called Mission Dolores since it was close to a creek called Arroyo de Nuestra Senora de los Dolores or "Our Lady of Sorrows" creek. This mission is well known for its part in the Eastern Orthodox martyred saint, Peter the Aleut, who had been tortured and murdered by Roman Catholic priests for denying to renounce Orthodox Christianity for Roman Catholicism in 1815. Also it was used in the scene of Vertigo, where James Stewart follows Kim Novak into the mission and out into the cemetery where she lays flowers at the grave of Carlotta Valdes, and its reference in the song San Francisco by Vanessa Carlton, and the Class Action movie where it was featured in a funeral scene. Also a dining car called Mission Dolores would be part of the train, the City of San Francisco that was jointly run by the Chicago and North Western Railway, the Southern Pacific Railway and the Union Pacific Railroad that ran between Oakland and Chicago until 1971 and the subject of Jerry Garcia's song, Mission in the Rain. It would be the site of America's first African American millionaire, William Alexander Leidesdorff's grave, even though he wasn't a Catholic.
