July 28 in San Antonio history

San Antonio has one new polio case admitted to Robert B. Green hospital, a three-year old girl.

Work begins on the restoration of old Hangar 9 at Brooks Air Force Base.  Originally created as a temporary structure in 1917, the hangar is the oldest existing aircraft hangar at any U.S. Air Force Base.  Plans are announced for a $100,000 fund drive for the restoration project.  The hangar will become a museum dedicated to the late astronaut Edward H. White.

Rolling Oaks Mall opens at Nacogdoches and Loop 1604.  Phase One, with 570,000 square feet of leasable area, features Dillards, Sears, Circus World, County Seat, Deck the Walls, Everything’s a Dollar, Foot Action, Hasting’s Records, Naturalizer, Radio Shack, The Accessory Store, Unique Creations, Waldenbooks, Woolworth Express, Zales and six Santikos theaters. The mall also contains 14 restaurants and a 400-seat dining area. Designed to grow with the community, Rolling Oaks plans to add four major department stores and one junior department store by the year 1990 — increasing the mall’s leasable space to 1.2 million square feet.
