This Happened Here
In this role, the WDC is hosting the SA 300 event This Happened Here: History in Hidden Corners of the Westside Tour next year, and is currently seeking storytellers from the community to share their own rich experience with the history of the Westside.

HISTORY & EDUCATION
San Antonio values its history; its citizens wear their pride and passion on their sleeves. SPARK 300 SA reflect the city’s commitment to education at all levels – public, private, charter, and collegiate – and can be found in all parts of our community. It’s little wonder then that History and Education would play a central role in the city’s Tricentennial celebration. We imagine featured exhibits, a commemorative book, interactive learning opportunities, thrilling reenactments of events in their original settings, and many other learning opportunities.
