St. Joseph's Church

More Photos

St. Joseph's Downtown Church, in San Antonio, TX, was built in 1868 by a community of German Catholics. In the mid-1900s, as the city grew and decided to cater more to tourists, most of the homes surrounding the Church were destroyed to permit the extension of the San Antonio Riverwalk, the Convention Center and several hotels. Joske's Department store (which is now a Dillard's) was constructed to flank St. Joseph's on three sides.
