Westside Creeks Historic Resources Survey

Project Name: Westside Creeks Historic Resources Survey

Project Location: San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas

Project Type: Historic Resources Survey

Owner: San Antonio River Authority (SARA)

Hicks & Company historians conducted a historic resources survey for a proposed trail system and associated park improvements on San Antonio’s west side. The historic resources team developed historic contexts for neighborhoods in the project area and completed a reconnaissance survey of multiple resources, including Elmendorf and Woodlawn Lake parks. Working closely with the City of San Antonio (COSA) and the Texas Historical Commission (THC), the team made determinations of eligibility for individual resources as well as districts and assessed the impact of the proposed project on National Register-eligible resources in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The final report was submitted in September 2014.
