News & Announcements

August 14 in San Antonio history...

1895
Ground is broken for the main building of Our Lady of the Lake Academy.  Originally, the name was to be “St. Mary’s of the Lake” but Bishop Forest persuaded Mother Florence that there were so many St. Mary’s in San Antonio that another name might be more appropriate.  With that, the name was changed to Our Lady of the Lake.

1906
The S. A. and A. P. railroad will run a spur line to the 17,000-acre target range and maneuver ground, near Leon Springs, which the government has recently been acquiring. In event of any practice at this place there will then be ample facilities for the trans­portation of troops. The “Sap’s” engineer is now at work figuring out the route, and it is expected the work on the short line will be begun at an early date.

1917 – World War I
Colonel Malvern-Hill Barnum, chief of staff of the Southern Department of the Army, made the announcement today that the name Camp Kelly, used informally for years, is now officially Kelly Field.  The government is designating all its aviation posts as fields and not camps, so Camp Kelly must go.
