December 24 in San Antonio history...

Today and tomorrow are magical days for San Antonio children – Christmas and the arrival of Cole’s Monster Menagerie Circus, featuring “three hundred and fifty wild and tamed animals, reptiles, birds and curiosities!”

Rt. Reverend Anthony Dominic Pelicer is installed at San Fernando Cathedral as first Bishop of  San Antonio (he was buried in this cathedral April 17, 1880.)

As a Christmas gift to the city, Mrs. Emma Koehler donates the 11 acres known as Madarasz Park to connect Brackenridge Park with the Zoological Gardens, to be known henceforth as Otto Koehler Park.
