Casa Navarro to reopen
SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas Historical Commission invites the public to celebrate the newly renovated Casa Navarro, one of San Antonio’s historic downtown treasures, on Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at 10 a.m. Visit the new engaging exhibits and experience the fascinating stories of Navarro’s life. The grand reopening ceremony begins at 10 a.m., and exhibits, food vendors, and activities will continue until 4 p.m.
Casa Navarro State Historic Site, one of the historical commission’s 20 historic sites, will reopen after more than a year of preservation renovations and the installation of new state-of-the-art interpretive exhibits. The historic property was the 1850s adobe and caliche block homestead of Texas hero and leader José Antonio Navarro.
Casa Navarro State Historic Site is located at 228 S. Laredo St. in the heart of old San Antonio. The original Casa Navarro complex was the residence of Texas patriot José Antonio Navarro (1795--1871), a rancher, merchant, leading advocate for Tejano rights, and one of only two native-born Texans to sign the Texas Declaration of Independence.
