News & Announcements

June 19 in San Antonio history...

1885
The first graduates of San Antonio High School are given their diplomas.  They are: Charles Arnold, Clara Carrico, Leila Emrie, Anna Graves, Lillite Gill, Ada Hockett, William Knox, Hannah Morris, Virginia Newton, Hart Poor, Seymour Thomas and Nannie Weir.

1917 
Subscriptions for the purchase of the ancient governor’s palace, a relic of the royal government of Spain, which stands on Military Plaza and which is in danger of being torn down, are beginning to be received by the committee working for its preservation, Miss Adina De Zavala, chairman. A regular plan of campaign has not been decided upon, but a meeting of the executive and advisory committees will be held at some time next week, the time and place to be announced later. This building is one of the oldest structures in San Antonio and was erected by the Spanish government as the administrative palace when Texas was a province of Spain. In spite of disfiguring signs and years of neglect and abuse, the building has a commanding appearance and the ancient seal of Spain still remains over the door.

2012
Megabus, a division of Coach USA, begins direct bus service from San Antonio to Austin, Dallas and Houston with 17 daily departures that leave from a parking lot at Broadway and 4th Street.  For the first week, fares are no more than $1.00 each way.
