DroneView 7 flies over Mission Dolores, San Francisco's oldest surviving structure, on April 3, 2019.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- In San Francisco's Mission District, the change has been constant and dramatic. But one landmark has withstood the ebbs and flows of the city's technological, economic, and social evolution.

Mission Dolores is the city's oldest surviving structure. It was established in 1776, under the direction of Father Junipero Serra.

According to Andrew Galvan, Mission Dolores's curator and museum director, it is the oldest building in San Francisco -- surviving fires, devastating earthquakes, and so much more.

Hear from Galvan and watch as DRONEVIEW7 flies over the old Mission and the Mission Dolores Basilica next door.
