October 15 in San Antonio history...

1910
The Hertzberg Clock is removed from 329 Commerce Street and moved to its new home on Houston Street. The clock works are removed and the old clock is transported through the streets by wagon. One bystander says, “Well, I guess I will have to buy me a watch now. As long as that clock was in place, I didn’t need one. It was watch enough for the whole neighborhood.”

1938
The Alamo Museum, built with Texas Centennial funds, is dedicated. Ceremonies are held in the new State Park surrounding the Alamo chapel.

1951
