SERVPRO Takes the Stress Out of Fire Cleanup
San Antonio is undoubtedly one of the most iconic cities in Texas. It is one of the earliest Spanish colonies in the state. Settlers first saw the area when an explorer named Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca landed there in 1536. Native people briefly captured him, and during his time there saw the river that would be called the San Antonio River. He reported back to colleagues in Mexico City.
Spanish settlers founded missions and built forts in the area, and the missions grew until San Antonio was the largest Spanish settlement in Texas. During the Texas Rebellion, several pivotal battles took place in or near San Antonio. The United States annexed Texas in 1845. After the civil war, many Anglo settlers learned the traditional Mexican and Spanish herding techniques that were popular among Spanish and Mexican immigrants. San Antonio became a famous center of cattle culture and spawned a whole new generation of cowboys. By 1850, San Antonio was the largest city in Texas.
Today, San Antonio is a buzzing modern city that is still growing. Reminders of the past are all around, but you can find all mod cons too.
