Lincoln Heights Event – San Antonio – 1/11/2020

We met the walking club at the Corner Bakery Cafe in the Quarry Market. We had planned on doing the Alamo Heights Event, but heavy rains had flooded part of that walk route. So we did the Lincoln Heights Event instead. This is what we found….


Smokestacks or chimneys left over from the cement plant days still mark the Quarry Market Shopping Center.


We turned onto Jones Maltsberger Road and passed this longhorn standing guard.


When we turned onto Basse Road we spotted this angel flying close to the ground.


Our check point was waiting for us on Lorenz Road with drinks and candy.


Behind the checkpoint is the recently refurbished original St. Anthony de Padua Catholic Church, which was built when this area was known as “Cementville”. 


Lourdes grotto next to the church was built by Dionicio Rodriguez.


Bronco Buster by Frederic Remington.  (Copy of course, of the first sculpture Remington ever created.)


Alamo Heights Methodist Church


Smokestacks let us know we are nearing the finish.
