People have been putting names to places around San Antonio for more than 300 years. This is the first book to sort things out. More than 500 San Antonio names are defined, sometimes with pictures, in 9 chapters: Early Spanish Names; Streets; Parks and Plazas; Schools and Universities; Libraries, Learning Centers and Museums; Landmark Buildings and Names; Medical Center; Military Bases; and Separate Suburbs and Towns. A tenth chapter gives origins of names in seven adjacent counties: Atascosa, Bandera, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, Medina and Wilson.
