While planning a Design & Build Conference in San Antonio, we were told that a visit to the King William Historic District is a must for anyone interested in experiencing the city’s rich history and cultural heritage.

So we’ve arranged for you to wander the tree-lined streets, admire the architecture, and immerse yourself in the stories of generations past told by Vincent Michael, PhD, the Executive Director of The Conservation Society of San Antonio.

Boarding a barge at 6:30 pm at the Embassy Suites Riverwalk Hotel, travel leisurely down the San Antonio River to the city’s first “suburb” and the first historic district in Texas.

In the late 1800s, it was the most elegant residential area in the city. Settled by German immigrants, the neighborhood was named after Kaiser Wilhelm of Prussia and represented their achievements as they prospered and built opulent mansions.

Steeped in architectural beauty, this district boasts a collection of well-preserved 19th-century homes notable for their style, many of which today have been converted into museums and cultural centers.

Situated across the street from King William Park, we will use the 1870 Anton Wulff House at 107 King William as our staging location. Which has a parking lot (for anyone driving) and bathrooms for…you know.

The weather is warm this time of year. Who are we kidding? It’s going to be freekin’ hot!!

Please do not dress to impress. Dress to be comfortable. Light shorts and T-shirts are suggested.

At the Anton Wulff House, we will have cool beverages, deli sandwiches, limited seating, and shade.

To ensure enough riverboats and refreshments, please fill out the short form below to let us know if you are joining us and the size of your party.

Thanks! We’ll see you in beautiful San Antonio.
