Sightseeing
Dedicated in 1755, Mission Concepción appears very much as it did over two centuries ago. It stands proudly as the oldest unrestored stone church in America. In its heyday, colorful geometric designs covered its surface, but the patterns have long since faded or been worn away. However, original frescos are still visible in several of the rooms. https://www.nps.gov/saan/planyourvisit/concepcion.htm

Known as the "Queen of the Missions", this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s by the WPA (Works Projects Administration). Spanish missions were not churches, but communities with the church the focus. Mission San José captures a transitional moment in history, frozen in time. https://www.nps.gov/saan/planyourvisit/sanjose.htm

The King William Historic District is located south of downtown and bounded by Durango, South St. Mary’s, Eagleland and the San Antonio River. The district encompasses land that was once irrigated farm land belonging to the Mission San Antonio de Valero, commonly known as the Alamo. When the mission was secularized in 1793, the lands were divided among the resident Indian families from the mission or sold at public auction. In the 1860s the area was subdivided into lots and laid out with the present streets.

As heralded by SA2020, the historic 1929 Roosevelt Library, under the direction of Leland Stone, is a “new kind of gathering space.” The building is located across from the Roosevelt Park which marks the beginning of the Mission Reach Ecosystem Restoration and Recreation Project, an eight mile stretch of the San Antonio River that has received designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The building, designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, was designed by architect John Marriott who also designed the Carnegie Library in Delaware, Ohio. In addition to exhibits throughout the building, the lower floor gallery exhibits the Gabriel Prize, one of the largest collections of original watercolors of French architecture by American artists and architects. The lower floor is also home to Limatus Bespoke, a unique custom clothing showroom which was named Menswear Designer of the Year in 2017 by San Antonio Fashion Awards. The building also features one of the largest dining tables in San Antonio, a library with a Steinway piano, a screening lounge with color-changing fabric walls, a well-appointed one-seat barber shop open every other Thursday, and an over-the-top chef’s kitchen featuring the La Cornue’s largest French range.
