“Throwback Thursday”- The 19th century brought a different settlement pattern to the neighborhood. In 1856, the corporate limits of the city were divided into four wards covering 36 square miles. The Hemisfair area fell within the boundaries of Ward 4, which included all of the land east of the San Antonio River and south of Commerce Street to the city’s eastern and southern limits. #history #SATX www.hemisfair.org/
“Throwback Thursday”- A network of streets linked adjacent neighborhoods, criss-crossing the present day Hemisfair area. Residential homes in the “settlement style” and commercial businesses of the earliest settlers of San Antonio were located along these nodes. #SATX #history www.hemisfair.org/
