Saving San Antonio – The Preservation of a Heritage – by Lewis Fisher
Author: Lewis Fisher. Saving San Antonio tells the history of preserving the architectural, natural and cultural heritage of the city over the last century and a half, a story that is largely that of the Conservation Society of San Antonio, founded in 1924. Lewis Fisher’s impeccable research provides an accurate yet enthralling story of determined ladies and other preservationists fighting City Hall and making a lasting impression on the Alamo City. Winner of several awards, the second edition includes the World Heritage inscription of the San Antonio Missions and the battle over Alamo Plaza.
