San Antonio : La Villita Historic Arts Village

The downtown La Villita Historic District reflects the Spanish, European and American influences that shaped San Antonio’s history. Once the site of a Coahuiltecan Indian village, La Villita subsequently thrived as a residential area filled with Mexican houses of stucco-covered brick or caliche block and German vernacular structures before the neighborhood deteriorated in the early 1900s. In 1939, La Villita was restored by the city, and it now houses shops, small businesses and restaurants.
