The King William District

The King William District lies on the east bank of the San Antonio river, just to the south of the downtown area of the city. It was named in honour of Kaiser Wilhelm 1 by German immigrants who had started to settled there in the 1840’s.

The district went into decline in the early 20th Century, but started to be renovated in the 1950’s. Today it’s a very fashionable, pleasant, leafy, shady area of Colonial and Italianate¬†style houses.
