- Originally named Mission San Antonio de Valero, the Alamo served as home to
missionaries and their Indian converts for nearly seventy years.
Construction began on the present site in 1724. In 1793, Spanish officials
secularized San Antonio's five missions and distributed their lands to the
remaining Indian residents. These men and women continued to farm the
fields, once the mission's, but now their own, and participated in the growing
community of San Antonio.
San Antonio Museum of Art - The blend of glass elevators, skylights and
skywalk in the former Lone Star Brewery's castle-like building is a sight no
visitor to San Antonio can afford to miss. Art collections range from ancient
art to the most contemporary, including magnificent Greek and Roman sculpture,
and Latin American folk art. The Asian section has been expanded to include
Asian sculpture as well as Chinese, Japanese and Korean Art. The museum is
listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
