San Antonio Tidbits
San Antonio, Texas is served by two AMTRAK trains, two freight railroads, the San Antonio International Airport, many different state highways, and five United States highways.
From 1691 through 1709, Spanish expeditions were exploring the region and they named the San Pedro Creek and the San Antonio River. In 1773, San Antonio de Bexar was the capital of Spanish Texas. The population of the settlement was 2,060 people, which, by 1778, included the mission Indians. By 1795, the missions were all secularized, and San Antonio de Valero Mission, which later came to be known as the Alamo, was a military barracks. In 1813, San Antonio declared its independence from Mexico.
San Antonio was the location for many different battles that included the battle of the Alamo, and the siege of Bexar. This made it one of the most fought-over communities in North America. In 1837, San Antonio was appointed the county seat of Bexar County. In 1842, San Antonio was seized twice by Mexican invasions, and in 1846, the population decreased to approximately 800 people. In 1850 the population of San Antonio was 3,488 people, but by 1860, had increased to 8,235. Until after 1877, German speakers outnumbered both Anglos and Hispanics. Even before Texas seceded from the Union, the local militia accepted the surrender of the federal arsenal in San Antonio in 1861. Soon thereafter, San Antonio became a Confederate depot.
San Antonio prospered as a military, mercantile, distribution, and cattle center that served the Southwest and the border area, following the Civil War. In 1877, the arrival of the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway, and San Antonio experienced a new period of economic growth. By 1880, the population of San Antonio had increased to 20,550 people. Arriving in San Antonio from the northeast, in 1881 a second railroad, the International–Great Northern, and by 1900, an additional five railroads had arrived in San Antonio. During the 1880's, modernization of the community was explosive. A power plant, hospitals, telephones, water supply, maintenance, street paving, and utilities were all either planned or established. In 1900, San Antonio was the largest community in Texas. The population of San Antonio was 53,321 people. By 1920 the population had increased to 161,379 people.
It wasn't until 1940 that San Antonio expanded beyond its initial Spanish charter. Within the metropolitan area, the land was large enough to permit numerous incorporated suburbs. However, soon San Antonio went beyond these. Much the same as the majority of communities in America in the 1900's, in the age of the automobile age, the expansion of San Antonio was primarily horizontal, with sprawling neighborhoods but without much vertical building. Vertical building didn't continue, although many tall buildings and the first skyscraper in Texas were constructed in San Antonio during the early 1900's, and the center of the population steadily relocated northward. In the wartime boom of the 1940's, the population of San Antonio increased by 61%, and by 1950, had increased to 408,442 people.
For several years, the primary economic generators were Lackland Air Force Base, Fort Brooks, Randolph, Kelly, and Sam Houston. During the 1950's, the population San Antonio increased by nearly 44%, and by 1960 had increased to 587,718 people. San Antonio became the third largest community in Texas, by 1990, having a population of 935,933 people, of whom 55.6% were Mexican Americans, 35.9% were Anglos, 7% were African Americans, and 1.5% were other. San Antonio was still the ninth largest community in the nation and the third largest community in Texas by 2000, and had a population of 1,144,646people, of whom 58.7% were Hispanic, 32.5% were Anglos, 6.8% were African Americans, and 2% were other.
San Antonio has established a viable economy from its medical research complex, tourism, educational institutions, and stable military bases. By the late 1800's, San Antonio had become a favorite retirement destination for Texans who sought its civilized amenities, graceful ambiance, and mild climate. It has continually been a favored military retirement location. The medical-research facilities in San Antonio include the latest 1,500-acre Texas Research Park in west Bexar County, the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, the Southwest Research Institute, the Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force Base, and the Brooke Army Medical Center.
