About this Tour Stop...

Meaning "little village" in Spanish, the area dates back to 1792 when it was the home of Spanish soliders and their families. In an effort to clean up the area, he San Antonio Conservation Society, in cooperation with the National Youth Administration, restored the area in 1939-1940. It was one of the earliest Historic Districts in the city.
