News & Announcements

December 22 in San Antonio history...

1836
On December 22, 1836, the new Texas government formed the county government of Bexar, with San Antonio as its County Seat.

1917 – World War I
San Antonio has been selected by the War Department as one of three cities, the others being Atlanta and Baltimore, for location of big army repair shops to cost from $1,000,000 to $3,000,000.  The San Antonio shops will take care of all repairs of the army in the territory south of Kansas and west of the Mississippi River.

1967
The final pre-cast and furnished room (of 496) is flown into place on the 20th floor of the Palacio Del Rio Hotel.  Placement of the last room was scheduled for January 5, but H. B. Zachry’s crews became so adept at hoising the 35-ton concrete rooms the “last flight” was moved up. (photo right)
