Our City, Our History shines a light on what makes San Antonio a special place

Here on Our City, Our History, we've spent the city's Tricentennial telling you all about places that make San Antonio, well...San Antonio. (SBG San Antonio)

When you think of San Antonio history, you may think of the Old Spanish Missions, which have been around since the 1700s or you may know about places like The Pearl or perhaps Fiesta and huge events like Fiesta de Los Reyes.

Here on Our City, Our History, we've spent the city's Tricentennial telling you all about places that make San Antonio, well...San Antonio.

We've told you how events like the 1968 World's Fair really helped shape the city and drive the tourism industry as we know it today.

There's so much to San Antonio that it could take another few years to cover it all.

We're made up of unique places like Schilo's - a family deli that was establish in 1917. This year, Woodlawn Lake Park celebrated its centennial, as did Port Loring Mortuaries.

Originally founded just after the end of World War I, Porter Loring Mortuaries served those who died while serving in the military, and those who lose their lives to the influenza epidemic.

And last, but certainly not least, we can't forget Bexar County itself.

Like San Antonio, it celebrated its tricentennial in 2018, and it did so with a bang.
