The Source: A New History Of Bexar County

Bexar History

The story of San Antonio's founding and settlement is more complicated than you might think.
A new Bexar County exhibit Nuestra Historia - Our History: Spain in Bexar County - brings the original maps and documents connected to the establishment of the city 300 years ago. It's a rare opportunity to see first-hand what went into the creation of San Antonio.
