Step back in time as you visit 19th-century Victorian mansions and beautiful gardens in the King William District–San Antonio’s most elegant residential area in the 1800s and now one of the oldest registered historic districts in Texas. Highlights include:

  • Steves Homestead - Edward Steves, who immigrated to Texas in 1848 and later founded the Steves Lumber Company, built this lovely restored home in 1876.
  • Maverick Carter House - This Richardsonian Romanesque-style house was built in 1893 by William Maverick. The original furnishings of this house-museum are so complete that you'd think the lady of the house just stepped out to run an errand.
  • Guenther House - The elegant Guenther House was the home of the founding family of the Pioneer Flour Mills, still an active San Antonio business. Located on a bend in the San Antonio River, this stately home was built in the 1860s by Carl Hilmar Guenther.

Tour departs from the Grand Hyatt.
