“Today San Antonio is revered for the beautiful riverwalk, the courage of the defenders of the Alamo and for the culinary and cultural delights of Mexico and the Lone Star State.
As you walk around the brightly colored streets of downtown, remember that the city of San Antonio has a dark and tragic past.
San Antonio was originally founded by the Spanish in the year 1718. The Spanish would immediately bring disease and destruction to the indigenous people, leading to over a century of battles and the collapse of indigenous nations.
Echoes of our past remain, with haunting memories of gunfights, gambling and prostitution still haunting the city today.
The streets of downtown San Antonio are home to the deceased. With unmarked burial grounds that dot the Alamo compound, much of the downtown area is one large cemetery, paved over to make way for modern amenities.
This city has seen more disease, death and murder than many cities across America.
It’s no surprise that San Antonio has countless ghost stories and legends.
