Director's Club Weekend: How the West Was Won: Westward Expansion and the American Spirit

Where and when

March 24, 2023 —
March 26, 2023

San Antonio, TX

Join Ashbrook in beautiful and historic San Antonio for tours of…

The Alamo

The Church, or “Shrine”, has become the most recognizable structure on the Alamo grounds. Originally a Spanish mission church, it later played a vital role in the 1836 Battle of the Alamo. Some traces from the battle still exist but changes to the structure reflect its later role as a U.S. Army Quartermaster Depot warehouse and eventually a memorial to the Alamo defenders.

The River Walk

The River Walk, or Paseo del Rio, is a San Antonio treasure and the largest urban ecosystem in the nation. Tucked quietly below street level and only steps away from the Alamo, it provides a serene and pleasant way to navigate the city.
