San Antonio Sights

Casa Navarro State Historic Site

Updated 02/05/2013

Fodor's Review

A signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, lawyer and legislator José Antonio Navarro built these three limestone, brick, and adobe buildings in the 1850s for his residence and law office. He had sold his ranch near Seguin and moved to San Antonio to be active on the city council. Open to visitors, the one-half acre site in old San Antonio's Laredito area features period furniture and copies of Navarro's writings—he wrote about the history of Texas from a Tejano's perspective and in the Spanish language. It is San Antonio's only historic site focused on the Mexican history and heritage of Texas from the viewpoint of a native Texan with Mexican ancestry. A fundraising effort is underway to expand the attraction with more interpretive exhibits.
