About the Exhibit:
Traveling on Fredericksburg Road
September 19, 2013 - December 15, 2013
Since the 1840s, Fredericksburg Road has been a trail to the Texas Frontier. To museum visitors and San Antonians, this exhibit an opportunity to look back on places they remember, miss, and treasure.
From an architectural perspective, Fredericksburg Road is a living timeline on the city’s development. For the UTSA College of Architecture, it’s a case study for graduate students to observe changes in land use, building typology, residential densities and lot sizes, historic events and notable places.
The exhibit includes maps, photographs, analytical diagrams, economic data, morphological data and population data. Videos featuring oral histories from residents and business owners, and a drive along Fredericksburg Road will offer additional perspective on the road’s history and change over time
