Students Learn About Historic Downtown San Antonio

By Maureen "Mo" Brown, Casa Navarro Site Manager

Last month, Casa Navarro State Historic Site welcomed a school tour of third to fifth graders from Burke Elementary who were focusing on San Antonio’s downtown structures, including historic buildings and their changes over time. I met them in Military Plaza/Plaza de Armas and led the tour from there to City Hall, where Mayor Julian Castro greeted the students and took photos with them. From there, we went to the Spanish Governor’s Palace and finally to the front of Casa Navarro. The photos below are from our tour.

Casa Navarro is located at the corner of S. Laredo and W. Nueva streets in downtown San Antonio, in the Texas Independence and Hill Country Trail Regions.
