A four-foot square piece of limestone was pried out of the wall of the KENS-TV building today.  Behind the stone was a time capsule consisting of four locked vaults.  They were placed there on July 7, 1956 during the dedication of the then-new home of KENS-TV and KENS Radio.  Susan Howard, who plays Donna Culver on the TV show “Dallas” was on hand to open the vaults.  Master of ceremonies was Joe Alston, better known as “Captain Gus.”

The 210 area code changes to include only San Antonio and Bexar County. Area codes 830 and 956 are added for areas north and south of San Antonio.
