1917 – World War I
A tract of land directly south of San Antonio comprising approximately 1600 acres is being assembled by a committee from the Chamber of Commerce for submission to the War Department as a site for a new aviation field. This new tract is about six miles away from Kelly Field and directly south of the city. It is bounded on the north by the Upson Road, on the east by the Southton Road and on the west by the Goliad Road.
The Witte Museum is opened to the public.
