San Antonio, Texas
Located at the head of San Antonio River, the city of San Antonio originated from the
San Antonio de Béxar Presidio which was founded 1718.
Explored by Spanish expeditions in 1691 and 1709, which named the San Antonio River and San
Pedro Creek, the area which is now called San Antonio, Texas grew out of a merge between
the town of San Antonio de Béxar Presidio and the villa of San Fernando de Béxar,
which was chartered by Canary Islanders in 1731.
Today, San Antonio is part of Texas' Bexar County and on
Interstate Highway 10 (east–west) and Interstate Highway 35 and 37
The city is also served by five U.S. highways, numerous state
highways, San Antonio International Airport, two freight railroads (the Union
Pacific and Southern Pacific), and two AMTRAK trains.
